White House opposes Aereo streaming TV service in Supreme Court battle

Aereo has some formidable new opposition in the courts. According to Deadline, the White House has recommended that the Supreme Court rule against Aereo when broadcasters bring its service to trial this April. The administration reportedly made the recommendation in an amicus brief filed today, which argues that Aereos use of discrete antennas to record broadcast television for its customers does not change the fact that it is later retransmitting those recordings to the public. Like its competitors, [Aereo] therefore must obtain licenses to perform the copyrighted content on which its business relies, reads the brief.
