After Aereo lost its case at the Supreme Court, it quickly shut down. But FilmOn, just kept on going. Now that decision is coming back to bite FilmOn and its eccentric owner, Alki David.

FilmOn and David were slapped with a $90,000 contempt order -- $10,000 for each day that it kept distributing network TV channels. US District Judge Naomi Buchwald found FilmOn in violation of its injunction not to infringe TV companies' copyrights "by any means." David, who plans to appeal the judge's order, is not too happy about the decision. Judge Buchwald "largely relied on unauthenticated and inadmissible news articles" to find him in contempt, David said.
