Consumers favour Aereo in Supreme Court case

Thursday 12 June 2014 | 16:18 CET | News
According to a new study from Peerless Insights, the majority of consumers want to see Aereo prevail in the upcoming Supreme Court ruling "American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. v. Aereo, Inc.," however they also believe that like traditional cable companies, Aereo should compensate broadcasters for content appropriation. The Supreme Court ruling, expected to be announced in June, will decide if Aereo is in compliance with the current copyright laws around private and public performances.
