DIstrict Court Judge Grants Injunction In Another Aereo Suit

U. S. District Court Judge Dale Kimball has granted Fox Broadcasting a preliminary injunction against Aereo, but has issued a stay, because the Supreme Court has granted cert in the case between Aereo and major broadcasters ABC et al.  The case raises the issue of whether Aereo infringes the copyright of the broadcasters when it retransmits their programming over the internet without a license to its subscribers. Fox, Sinclair Group, and Local TV had filed a case in Utah in October, 2013, after Aereo began providing service there.
