Chet Kanojia, the founder of Aereo, talked about the case to be heard the next week by the U.S. Supreme Court, American Broadcasting Companies v. Aereo. Broadcasters accused Aereo of violating copyright law by transmitting their broadcasts without permission. Mr. Kanojia said Aereo uses individual cloud-based antennas for every user and that the individual watchers pull down the content from the cloud, and therefore these are not the public performances that broadcasters claim are violating copyright law. Some cable and satellite companies, which currently pay retransmission fees to broadcasters, support Aereo, saying Aereo is not violating copyright law. close
