NBCUniversal and Dish Network Settle Dueling Legal Claims, Including Last of Hopper Lawsuits

NBCUniversal and Dish Network are calling off a pair of reciprocal civil lawsuits, including the last of the suits filed against Dish over its advertisement-skipping Hopper technology. A notification (in Pacer) filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago said a stipulation (in Pacer) filed by Dish and NBCU meant Dish's breach of contract claim on screen crawls warning Dish subscribers of the possible dropping of NBC programming was being dismissed with prejudice and with each side bearing its own costs and attorney fees. It followed a stipulated dismissal (in Pacer) filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles by NBCU and Dish on NBCU's 2012 Hopper-related copyright infringement complaint against Dish. Similar ad-skipping suits by CBS and Disney settled similar in 2014 and by Fox earlier this year.
