Aereo Copyright Case in the Supreme Court

This one-hour CLE features John Tehranian (One LLP partner), Kelly M. Klaus (Munger Tolles & Olson partner) and Zachary S. McGee (the SVP, Head of Business & Legal Affairs at Miramax) examining and analyzing the key issues in the upcoming Aereo litigation before the Supreme Court. The case addresses the legality of services that retransmit broadcast signals to Internet viewers without the permission of the major over-the-air television networks. As such, the CLE traces the history of retransmission rights under the Copyright Act, the extant circuit split on how courts have defined ‘public’ performances, and the important legal and policy issues raised by the litigation for the entertainment industry.
