Locast, a company that claimed to improve access to neighbourhood TV terminals for people who can’t get the signal via traditional means, has been handled a setback by a New York Court. It lost a courtroom battle with CBS, ABC, NBC and Fox, which said the company was infringing copyright. Deadline reports the group’s request for summary judgment was granted, and it couldn’t use its non-profit status as a justification against further action.
The nonprofit streaming service is funded in part by AT& T Inc and Dish Network Corp, and the lawsuit said the service cured AT& T and Dish avoid paying to carry broadcast content.
It all reiterates 2014 when broadcasters accused Aereo of intellectual property rights infraction. Aereo rented physical antennae that offered neighbourhood channels and a vapour DVR service that streamed to smartphones, tablets and PCs. Broadcasters and the federal government claimed it was a violation of copyright law, as it technically rebroadcast content from the airwaves. Aereo was forced to pay broadcasters $950,000.
Oh, and it’s worth noting, as the lawsuit continues, that Locast’s founder, David Goodfriend, saw the service after Aereo was forced to close.
