Lux Vide Wins $1.86m Judgment Against Operator of File-Hosting Site EasyBytez
After a four-year legal process that began before the coronavirus pandemic, Italian film production company Lux Vide has emerged with a $1.86m judgment against the operator of file-hosting platform Easybytez. A Michigan district court found Sven Hansche liable for 748 violations of copyright law and was guided on damages awarded in lawsuits against IPTV providers Nitro TV and Area 51.
Following its launch in 1992, Lux Vide established itself as one of the most successful TV production companies in Italy.
With Netflix, Amazon Prime and Sky deals under Lux Vide’s belt, in March 2022 TV giant Fremantle (X Factor, Got Talent) acquired 70% of Lux Vide leading to recent investment and expansion.
Lux Vide has also recently emerged from an extended copyright lawsuit, one that predates the coronavirus pandemic.
