Supreme Court quizzes Aereo: Do TV streams break the law?

By Brian Stelter, CNN

In high-stakes arguments on Tuesday, the Supreme Court's justices challenged an attorney for Aereo to defend the legality of the television streaming service and explain the logic underpinning it.

The arguments summarized two years of legal tussling between Aereo, which provides streams of local television stations to paying subscribers, and the owners of those stations.

The TV station owners, major media companies like Disney and CBS, say that Aereo is violating copyright by allowing "public performances" of shows. Aereo says it is only enabling private screenings, just like off-the-shelf TV antennas do.

Several of the justices, in their questioning, repeatedly expressed concerns that a broad ruling against Aereowould imperil the nascent cloud computing industry because of how Aereo works. They seemed to search for a way to avoid that outcome.
