Supreme Court Rules Against Aereo

Aereo(CNN) — In a big win for broadcasters, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that streaming TV service Aereo violates the U.S. Copyright Act.

The major TV networks were among those who put up a united front and filed suit against Aereo back in 2012.

The companies argued that their signals were being sold illegally by the Internet start-up.

Aereo charged a small monthly fee to deliver over-the-air content to computers and mobile devices.

The company’s biggest financial backer has said there is no “plan b” if the court ruled that it was operating illegally.
