+ - Feds now oppose Aereo, rejecting cloud apocalypse argument

Submitted by v3rgEz
v3rgEz (125380) writes "TV streaming service Aereo expected broadcasters would put up a fight. The startup may not have seen the Justice Department as a threat, however. The Justice Department has now weighed in, saying in a filing that it’s siding with major broadcasters who accuse Aereo of stealing TV content. In its filing, the Justice Department noted it doesn’t believe a win for broadcasters would dismantle the precedent that created the cloud computing industry, as Aereo has previously claimed.

The case is expected to go before the Supreme Court in late April."
