Because there is no dispute of fact between the parties-- indeed, each has won and each has lost in a different forum on these same facts -- the Court will grant Plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction." Although broadcasters' arguments against Aereo have so far failed to win the support of courts, the four major national broadcast television networks -- ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC -- filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against FilmOn X in May in the D.C. court. Like Aereo, FilmOn X uses antenna/DVR technology to let consumers watch live, local over-the-air television broadcasts on some Internet-connected devices. At least one of the plaintiffs said the decision should serve as a warning to other upstart TV streaming services.

"This decision should finally put the matter to rest, and will hopefully discourage other illegal services from attempting to steal our content." A spokesperson for CBS, which is CNET's parent company, said the network was pleased with the decision. An ABC spokesperson agreed. <br>Source:

Nobody's getting rich off this thing, at least not yet, but it seems like a very equitable process creatively." INTERACTIVE: Fall 2013 TV preview Butler said he was inspired to start a channel because he was tired of listening to his "successful, talented friends complaining that their agents weren't calling them for work." "There're are no rules, that's the great thing about this time in the world," said Butler, who plays bass in FKR's flagship band, Les Savy Fav, which is fronted by the outrageous singer Tim Harrington, who also stars webpage on FKR.TV's first series, "Song of the Wild," (a cross between "The Hunger Games" and "American Idol" in which five musicians have to survive in the woods with the winner getting a recording contract). "Vimeo, YouTube and other sites are breaking down those fundamentals. If you have an iPhone, you can edit a movie in seconds," he said. Butler compares the endeavor to running an indie music label: "You don't have to put out a band that sells a million copies, you can put out a band that sells 1,000 and that's awesome.
