TV Broadcasters Granted Injunction Against Alki David's TV Streaming Service
It's about managing expectations. And viewers are less judgmental about the production of the content; they care about laughing and being entertained." PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times That's the catch with most of what becomes successful in the streaming universe these days. Funny just seems to work better. "You're not going to have ' Breaking Bad or 'Game of Thrones' or any of those shows on a YouTube channel," Cross said. "And people are always going to have an appetite for that, especially as more of the silly, looser, cheaper stuff is being screened." And much of what is on FKR.TV is silly and loose, but the channel's shows possess the blissed-out levity that comes with artistic freedom, and most contain some real laugh-out-loud moments. <br>Source: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/tv/showtracker/la-et-st-streamland-david-cross-syd-butler-fkrtv-20130904,0,7305649.story
"The Court's decision conflicts with the law of the Second Circuit under Aereo II," admits Judge Collyer, agreeing to extend the injunction to everywhere in the United States except the 2nd Circuit (which covers New York, Connecticut and Vermont). The circuit split is one of the primary reasons why this dispute -- as well as the Aereo one -- seems primed to go to the Supreme Court for final resolution. In the meantime, the 9th Circuit is all set to come out with yet more legal wisdom on the legality of antennae-based TV streaming services. Last month, the appellate judges there heard arguments on whether or not to overturn the injunction issued by a California judge on Alki David's service. Today's ruling is certainly not the last word and won't as Fox suggests put the matter to rest, but it is an important development that muddies the water for TV streaming upstarts. <br>Source: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/tv-broadcasters-granted-injunction-alki-622427
