Aereo Forges Ahead Despite Legal ThreatsAereo, a company that streams and records local television content, is launching a problematic Android app, available on October 22nd to NYC, Boston, Atlanta, Salt Lake City, Miami, Dallas and Houston.

Aereo seems unperturbed by the fact that broadcasters cite the company as infringing on their copyrights by rebroadcasting their content without permission. Utah filed a lawsuit on Tuesday October 8th,  arguing fervently that copyright law has a fundamental principle in place protecting retransmission of copyrighted broadcasts without authorization.

Aereo has created their app to gear more people to sign up for their service. And for Aereo business is booming, but for how long?
