Cablevision Appeals Ruling on “Networked” DVR
Cablevision on Tuesday announced plans to appeal last month’s federal court decision, which found that the New York-based cable provider’s new “networked” digitial-video recording device violates the copyrights of the owners of its content, the AP reported. The appeal is an effort to reverse a ruling that may the brakes on the next generation of DVR technology.
The appeal would go before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, a Cablevision executive told the Hollywood Reporter.
In the ruling, handed down March 23, a federal court judge in New York, Denny Chin, sided with a group of Hollywood studios and against Cablevision.
