Aereo NOT Grounded -- BREAKING NEWS

Major breaking news in a closely-watched case involving online video.

Aereo -- Barry Diller's highly controversial online video company -- just won a significant battle against major broadcasters.  The Second Circuit Court of Appeals just rejected a plea to enjoin Aereo's services by Fox, CBS, NBC and 14 others.

That means that Aereo can -- for the time being at least -- continue on its quest to deliver local TV signals online via mini antennas used in customer homes (and, this is the critical part, without negotiating separate content licenses from those broadcasters).

Make no mistake -- this is a big deal.
