"There Is No Plan B": Supreme Court Rules Against Aereo

The Supreme Court has ruled, 6-3, that Aereo's retransmissions of network broadcasts infringe those copyright holders' copyrights. The Court found that the company both "performs" the broadcasts and transmits them to the "public" within the meaning of the statute. Aereo CEO Chet Kanojia had said in an interview that the company had no "Plan B," no backup plan, if it lost its case.

Here's a link to the opinion.
