Judge halts TV streaming service

Nets aim to stop FilmOn.com from transmitting station signals

A federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order to halt a site’s streaming of broadcast signals of TV stations over the Internet without the consent of the networks.

The case has potential ramifications for streaming and Web video, particularly as broadcasters aim to get a foothold against tech upstarts.

U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald issued her order against FilmOn.com.

CBS, NBC, Fox and ABC sued FilmOn.com shortly after its launch in late September, charging that its subscription service constitutes copyright infringement. In a separate action, they also are seeking to prohibit another company, Ivi Inc., which also offers online streams of broadcast feeds.
