Dish Wins $2.1 Million From Texan Who Sold Pirate IPTV Through Amazon
A Texas man who sold access to the pirate ‘Super Arab IPTV’ service through Amazon and Walmart, is liable for more than $2 million in damages. The default judgment, requested by broadcaster Dish, also targets two Chinese companies. The court also issued a broad injunction that targets hosting providers, domain registries, and other IPTV sellers.
U.S. broadcaster DISH Network has already booked a string of successes against pirate IPTV services this year, securing millions of dollars in damages.
A few days ago, another victory was added to the list when a district court in Texas issued a default judgment against local resident Yahya Alghafir.
The case began in 2020 when Dish filed a complaint against four defendants. In addition to Alghafir and his company Texas Communication and Technology LLC, the lawsuit also targeted a pair of Chinese corporations, Street Cat Technology and Jiemao Technology.
