  • Default Judgment - $132,500 - Lewis, James

    Missouri Federal Court rules against Digital TV reseller, awards DISH/NagraStar $132,500 in damages, and Orders permanent injunctive relief

    On April 14, 2020, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri granted DISH Network and NagraStar’s motion for final judgment against James Lewis. Lewis was sued by DISH Network and NagraStar in 2019 for federal claims arising out of his sale of IKS codes to an unauthorized, subscription-based pirate television service known as NFPS. The Court’s order includes a permanent injunction against Lewis, as well as an award of $132,500 in statutory damages under section 1203(c)(3)(A) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. DISH Network and NagraStar continue to investigate and take action against those responsible for trying to circumvent the companies’ security system in order to gain unauthorized access to DISH Network programming, as well as those selling products or services that facilitate unauthorized access to that programming.
