Obama administration sides against Aereo

By Brian Stelter, CNN Senior Media Correspondent

The Obama administration has sided with the nation's television broadcasters in a pending Supreme Court case against Aereo, the Internet service that scoops up freely available television signals and streams them to paying subscribers.

A joint filing by the Justice Department and the United States Copyright Office, made public on Monday, found that the Aereo "system is clearly infringing" and recommended that a lower court ruling in Aereo's favor be reversed. Such a ruling would likely put Aereo out of business and protect the broadcasters from similar challenges in the future.

Aereo declined to comment on the filing. Supreme Court oral arguments in the case are scheduled for April 22.
