Deadline reports that the US Supreme Court has granted a motion from the Deputy Solicitor General to appear during oral arguments on April 22nd as an amicus curiae in support of broadcasters claims that Aereo infringes their copyrights. The Obama Administration earlier requested permission to argue its perspective on the case before the justices on grounds that the decision will make important decisions about the scope of the public-performance right in the context of novel technologies for transmitting and viewing copyrighted audiovisual works using the internet. The White House made clear in an amicus brief that it believes Aereo should have to pay the same retransmission fees to networks like CBS, ABC, NBC, and FOX as cable and satellite providers.
