Tuesday, August 28, 2012
"The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit yesterday barred a company that streams live TV shows over the Internet from continuing to transmit the programming, finding that to hold otherwise would 'destabilize [an] entire industry' and inflict irreparable damage on the networks.
"In a unanimous decision, the court upheld Southern District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald (See Profile) and sustained a preliminary injunction barring ivi Inc. of Seattle from transmitting copyrighted material belonging to media powerhouses such as ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox Television and Major League Baseball."
