The Verge is reporting that TV-streaming startup Aereo has cleared a legal hurdle in a lawsuit brought against it by broadcasters:

Broadcasters argued that unlike Cablevision, Aereo lacked the proper license to operate — but the court ruled that the license doesn’t matter since Aereo customers are streaming their own unique copies to themselves. The remarkably tech-savvy decision for Aereo today clears major legal difficulties for the web-television broadcaster, and will force TV networks to win an appeal at the Supreme Court if they want to shut the streaming service down.
