In a 6-3 ruling, the Supreme Court stated that Aereo's antenna-to-DVR-to-consumer service violates broadcasters' copyrights, a loss that could spell the end of the road for the SVOD provider. The court determined that Aereo's technology was similar to that used by cable companies to retransmit broadcaster signals, citing the 1976 Copyright Act amendment in issuing its opinion.
The ruling could represent a blow to other online video providers like Apple TV and Google. The ruling could also have ramifications for mobile companies, since Aereo offered mobile access to its streaming video services. Article
