Now, the fight has taken a strange new twist. On Friday, Fox Networks filed a new suit against a start-up called BarryDriller.com (a play on the name of TV mogul and Aereo investor Barry Diller).

It argues that its technology is legal because individual users will be getting streamed TV from their own individual antennas. One of the plaintiffs, Fox Television Stations, is owned by News Corp., which also owns this Web site.”
