The Supreme Court decided not to hear the remote-storage digital video recording  (RS-DVR) case, as the Department of Justice had recommended last month.

The upshot is that a lower court ruling favoring Cablevision’s use of the technology stands, despite the appeals from major league sports, music and motion picture companies. In May, Cablevision signaled its intention to re-start its RS-DVR service this summer.

The news brought cheers from the Consumer Electronics Assocation (CEA), whose President and CEO Gary Shapiro said in a statement that "from a common-sense standpoint, the Court’s decision was slam dunk."
