After weeks of waiting the Supreme Court has decided on the ABC vs. Aereo case, with the court ruling against the video streaming startup and in favor of broadcasters. 

With a 6-3 vote, the court found that Aereo infringes on copyright because it presents a public performance, citing that the service’s audience is not individuals.

According to Sam Gustin, a Vice correspondent covering technology policy for Motherboard, “The takeaway is that court simply didnt buy Aereo’s technological argument.”

The ruling could have implications for how the courts rule on other copyright issues raised by digital distribution.

“One thing that it tells us is that the courts are sympathetic to the arguments of the broadcasters and rights holders,” says Gustin.
