    Federal Court Orders Impoundment of MyFreeNeeds Domains, Awards DISH/NagraStar $12,000,000 in Statutory Damages, and Enters Permanent Injunction against Angel Solis

    On October 15, 2012 the United States District Court for the Southern District of California entered judgment in DISH Networkand NagraStar’s favor in their case against Angel Solis and the website. Solis and others were sued in January of 2012 for their operation of the website, and the site’s distribution of piracy-related software files. The Court previously entered a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction compelling the website to be taken offline. In addition to the permanent injunction entered by the Court in the October 15th Order, the judge also awarded DISH Network andNagraStar statutory damages in the amount of $12 million under their Federal Communications Act claim. The Court further ordered GoDaddy to transfer the website domains at issue in the case to NagraStar, and ordered Defendants to turn over for impoundment all software files, business records, inventory computer hard drives and servers related to the operation of the myfreeneeds domains to DISH Network’s counsel for impoundment.
