While other OTT companies have been unable to retransmit broadcast signals over broadband, Aereo continues to succeed. In the latest Federal court case, "Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton said Hearst had not proven that Aereo would cause 'irreparable harm' to the broadcaster's business and thus could continue to operate in the Boston area." And so, Aereo continues to notch court wins to continue to operate its business. Of course, all these issues regarding the resale and use of over the air signals will eventually need to be heard by the US Supreme Court. For now, Aereo continues to have the right to resell broadcast signals for broadband reception.
