Aereo, a technology that uses tiny antennas to let people watch TV on the go, has already generated a flurry of lawsuits. Now the man behind Aereo is suing a copycat service for using his name. The disputes highlight disruptions to the traditional TV industry.
Broadcasters and Barry Diller are locked in lawsuits over Aereo, a service backed by Diller that lets subscribers watch TV on Apple products like the iPhone or iPad. The two sides appear to have found common ground, however, in their desire to shut down an Aereo competitor.
