Ivi Will Fight Decision Shutting Down Internet TV Service

Feb 23, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Ivi TV founder Todd Weaver vowed the Internet TV service would return after a New York district judge granted a temporary injunction that effectively shut down the service, reports B&C.

Ivi, which had been streaming dozens of broadcast stations over the Internet, stopped airing those stations Tuesday after the ruling, the story says. But Weaver said the fight will continue. “The oppressive big media networks must open their doors to innovators or they will inevitably fall," he said.

Ivi is also asking subscribers and "interested parties" to donate to Public Knowledge, the fair use advocacy group that backed the service, the story says.
