Broadcasters Seek To Hold FilmOn In Contempt Over New Streaming Service…

FilmOn vowed to roll out its new so-called “teleporter” service to 18 cities, and allegedly went ahead with the launch late last month in New York. But broadcasters say the teleporter is no more legitimate than any other service that streams television shows without licenses. […] Now, a coalition of TV broadcasters is urging U.S. District Court Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald in the Southern District of New York to hold FilmOn in contempt of court for launching the newest iteration of its streaming service. The broadcasters argue that the service violates Buchwald’s 2012 order against FilmOn, which prohibits the company from infringing copyright by streaming television shows online. – Wendy Davis,MediaPost  http://bit.ly/1o1Azed
