DAS Partner Eleanor M. Lackman was quoted by Law 360 in the wake of the most recent Second Circuit decision in WNET, Thirteen v. Aereo, Inc.; Am. Broad. Cos., Inc. v. Aereo, Inc.
The Second Circuit’s decision may hold significant repercussions for the cable television industry. Within the article, Eleanor observes that the decision places Aereo in an advantageous position in comparison with traditional cable systems and notes the importance of Judge Denny Chin’s dissent, which labels the Aereo business model a “sham” designed to exploit loopholes in the definition of a “public performance” under copyright law.
