Supreme Court Won’t Hear Ivi Challenge | Cable Television News | Broadcast Syndication | Programming | Multichannel.com

The Supreme Court Monday denied ivi’s request that the court review the Second Circuit Court of Appeals decision last summer upholding an injunction against the company’s streaming of TV station signals over the Internet without permission.

The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York had granted the injunction on the grounds that programmers were likely to win their challenge on the argument that ivi was not a cable system entitled to a compulsory license, and that those programmers, which included major studios, networks and broadcast groups, would suffer irreparable harm.
