Broadcasters got Locast to agree to an injunction in the event a federal judge rejected its key defense. The broadcasters quickly sought to hold Locast to that promise, and in mid-September, just in time for the NFL season and MLB playoffs, where millions of cord-cutters may have looked to Locast for telecasts of local games, the judge agreed. – Eriq Gardner, The Hollywood Reporter »
