DISH Networks Sues East

DISH Networks Sues East IPTV and its Host Serverlogy Corporation According to DISH, from January 2017 to the present day a total of 34 copyright infringement notices were sent to East IPTV. As the complaint points out, this argument alone is sufficient to prove that East IPTV certainly was fully aware of the copyright infringements in which they were involved. Once East IPTV jumped onto the Serverlogy network they just did so because the hosting service provider is marketing itself as a notice-ignoring company as many others are doing right now. This is what forced the NBA and UFC to ask U.S. lawmakers to pass new stream link blocking laws as hosting providers do not cooperate with official broadcasters. As DISH points out in its lawsuit: “DISH Networks sent eight infringement notices to Serverlogy warning East’s deliberate and systematic use of Serverlogy’s resources and servers to transmit and publicly execute the Protected Channels to Service Users. Instead of engaging with DISH to curb this infringement, Serverlogy actively blinded itself to East’s repeated infringement without terminating it or taking any action to delete or disable the infringing content. “In addition to the above, DISH maintains that Serverlogy does not have some form of repeated infringer policy or does not have a licensed DMCA agent and is willingly and deliberately d All that said the statutory damages requested by DISH from both defendants exceeded an amount of $150k per work that had been infringed showing evidence for at least 21 plays. This takes each entity’s total compensation sum to $3.15 million. The East IPTV website is up and fully operational at the time of writing this so the lawsuit has still not shaken either of the defendants.
