COUNTERCLAIM
Counterclaim Plaintiffs, by their attorneys, allege against Counterclaim Defendants FoxTelevision Stations, Inc., Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation, Fox Broadcasting Company,NBC Subsidiary (WRC-TV) LLC, NBC Studios LLC, Universal Network Television LLC, Open4 Business Productions LLC, Telemundo Network Group LLC, American BroadcastingCompanies, Inc., Disney Enterprises, Inc., and Allbritton Communications Company(collectively, “the Networks”) as follows:

INTRODUCTION
1.
 
To the extent that any defendant would have any liability by way of this or anyother action related to the mini-antenna services associated with defendant FilmOn X, alldefendants to this action (“Counterclaim Plaintiffs”) hereby counterclaim against all of thePlaintiffs for a declaration that the FilmOn X service does not infringe upon any of thedefendants’ copyrights. FilmOn X’s technology serves an important government interest
in
“preserving the benefits of free, over-the-air local broadcast television” recognized by theSupreme Court in
Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. v. FCC,
520 U.S. 180, 189
(1997),
byproviding a unique technology that allows consumers access to their own remotely locatedtelevision antenna and DVR, thereby enabling consumers to create and access from any Internet-enabled device unique copies of the same free-to-air broadcast programming that they wouldhave been able to access freely with a traditional “rabbit ears” antenna and traditional DVR. TheFilmOn X technology enhances customers’ ability to watch the same free over-the-air broadcastcontent that the American public is entitled to receive in accordance with the public interestrecognized by Congress and the Supreme Court.2.
 
Despite FilmOn X’s furthering of these important interests, CounterclaimDefendants (collectively, “the Networks”) – who have already been denied a preliminaryinjunction against Aereo, a company employing technology similar to FilmOn X, in the SecondCircuit – continue to attempt to block consumers’ access to valuable and beneficial technologieslike FilmOn X’s. Consistent with the same anticompetitive purpose that caused NBC to refuse todeal with defendant FilmOn (even when required to do so by law), the Networks have taken theirfight against these emerging technologies to the courts, filing disruptive and redundant litigationin multiple jurisdictions.
