The US operator Dish Network has emerged victorious from the lawsuit against the IPTV provider pirate Easybox for allegedly infringing copyright.
The District Court of the United States of Texas has sentenced the defendant to pay Dish $ 9.9 million in damages, specifically $150.000 for the 66 pirated works.
According to Dish, 24 television channels exclusive to its platform were available to Easybox subscribers at a lower price, on a list that included more than a thousand channels.
The lawsuit was first filed in 2016 after Dish discovered that 66 of its programs were being offered illegally by the service.
According to Dish Network, a total of 112 infringement notices were sent to Easybox between 2016 and 2019, requesting that illegal content be removed.
In September, Dish even cited companies, such as Google and PayPal, to find out who was in charge of the pirate provider. With this they managed to obtain the identities of those involved: Hung Tran and Thi Nga Nguyen.
Easybox domains have also been disabled, following the order of justice.
