Partner Andrew Baum was quoted in a National Law Journal article published on June 25, 2014, titled "Reach of Supreme Court's 'Aereo' Ruling Seen as Limited." The article examined the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in American Broadcasting Companies Inc. v. Aereo declaring that the streaming venture, Aereo, violated the major commercial broadcast networks' exclusive right under the federal Copyright Act to publicly perform their works by retransmitting network programming to consumers' Internet devices for a fee. It further explained that the decision is unlikely to affect other similar new technologies. Baum was quoted saying, “But if you look at it more broadly in terms of the overall intent of Congress in 1976, this probably is the sort of technology Congress would have wanted to include when they created compulsory licenses for cable systems."
