CBS threatens to file another lawsuit against Aereo, this time in Boston

CBS threatens to sue Aereo in Boston after the company launches

We've covered the legal issues with Aereo in a bit of detail. CBS has so far been unsuccessful in its attempts to stop Aereo from streaming the broadcast TV network over the Internet. CBS has now said that they intend to sue Aereo again, this time in Boston as the service launches on May 15.




The new threat came from Dana McClintock, executive vice president of communications for CBS. During a series of tweets between her, BTIG Research, and a Verge editor, McClintock was asked if CBS would sue in Boston or wait until the case in New York ended. The response was immediate and clear:


We will sue. Stealing our signal will be found to be illegal in Boston, just as it will be everywhere else.


It's interesting to note that CBS has so far been unsuccessful in its court challenges.
