The full U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit on Tuesday refused to reconsider an April ruling for upstart TV streaming company Aereo Inc. in its closely-watched copyright battle with the broadcast television industry. At least one broadcaster immediately vowed to continue the fight as far as the U.S. Supreme Court.
The decision is the latest setback for a coalition of major television networks, including CBS, NBC, ABC, and Fox, which had hoped to revive their bid to shut down Aereo's operations. And it marks yet another victory for Aereo's lawyers at Fish & Richardson, Winston & Strawn, and Constantine Cannon, even as the company expands into new markets.
