Preliminary injunction denied in ABC v Aero

In ABC v. Aero, a case brought by television stations and similar plaintiffs against Aero, Inc., the plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction was denied, by District Judge Alison J. Nathan, in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, in Manhattan.

Aero is a service which enables subscribers to view television programs on their computers contemporaneously with their over-the-air broadcasts, and which operates much like a DVR.

The Court rejected plaintiffs' arguments seeking to distinguish the 2nd Circuit holding in Cartoon Networks v. CSC Holdings, which upheld Cablevision's DVR service.
