NAB Statement on Solicitor General Aereo Brief

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the release of a brief today by the Solicitor General asserting that Aereo's technology violates broadcasters' copyrighted works, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:

"NAB is pleased that the Solicitor General -- who represents the U.S. Government before the Supreme Court -- agrees with broadcasters that Aereo is violating copyright law. We look forward to oral arguments and a final decision in the case, and we're hopeful that Aereo will be declared a copyright infringer."
