Broadcasters File Suit Against Aereo

Ask for permanent injunction against the online TV service

Broadcaster owners in New York filed lawsuits Thursday against Aereo, a service that delivers broadcast TV via the Internet. In two separate complaints filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, Fox, Univision, ABC, NBC, CBS and the public TV stations charge that the service infringes on the TV stations' exclusive rights of public performance and reproduction granted under the U.S. Copyright Act.
