STATEMENT FROM: COPYRIGHT ALLIANCE CEO SANDRA AISTARS

RE: US SUPREME COURT GRANT OF REVIEW OF THE AEREO CASE

 
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On behalf of the millions of artists, creators and innovators represented by our membership, the Copyright Alliance welcomes the Supreme Court's decision to review the Aereo case.  The decision by the Second Circuit in ABC v. Aereo has the effect of creating perverse incentives for companies to deploy lawyer – engineered, “Rube Goldberg” like technology that evades the law for the sole purpose of driving profits for the owners of those companies, without benefitting either the public or returning just compensation to creators.  We are confident that the Supreme Court will maintain the integrity of the copyright laws and ensure that the goals set by the Founders – to promote the development and dissemination of creative works – are achieved.
