CBS is dismissing the latest legal filing by Aereo as a "public relations" stunt. The unlicensed streaming startup has asked a federal court to preemptively rule that its service is not in violation of network copyrights ahead of a possible lawsuit by CBS. "These public relations and legal maneuvers do not change the fundamentally illegal nature of Aereo's supposed business," said CBS spokesman Dana McClintock. "Wherever Aereo attempts to operate, there will be vigorous challenges to its illegal business model."
