Satellite Piracy Defense

JoeSatellite Piracy, Dish Network LLC, Retain Antonelli Law

Satellite providers of cable television and Pay Per View events ("PPV") are going after people who allegedly used software and code word subscriptions to obtain satellite signals without paying the appropriate fee.

Joe Hand Promotions Inc. is suing defendants for alleged piracy of its Ultimate Fighting Championship of the McGregor v Diaz match telecast on March 5, 2016.

Internet Key Sharing, or IKS, allows updates to piracy software and code words to allow continued unauthorized access to satellite signals without paying a subscription fee.

Dish Network, LLC has alleged many people have violated federal law, including the DMCA,  Circumventing an Access Control Measure in Violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 1201(a)(1), by using piracy software and internet Key Sharing (IKS). If found liable by a federal court, defendants can face enormous monetary judgments as well as an injunction to cease using the piracy software and IKS. 

DirecTV, LLC likewise alleges bars and restaurants are violating the law for using residential subscriptions to their service, demanding thousands of dollars to settle these claims. Letters may come from the New York Lonstein Law Office, P.C.. A sample Complaint filed by DirecTV, LLC in the Northern District of Illinois can be found here.
