DISH Network Wins a Favorable Ruling from a California Federal Court Against Fox Broadcasting in a Case over Slingbox, Autohop and Other Hopper Features
Jan 22 15
DISH Network Corp. won a favorable ruling from a California federal court against Fox Broadcasting Co. in a case over the company's Slingbox, AutoHop and other Hopper features. The U.S. District Court in the Central District of California on Jan. 20 released its ruling upholding the rights of consumers under U.S. copyright law to use Slingbox technology and the AutoHop, PrimeTime Anytime and Transfers features of DISH's Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR. However, the court also ruled in favor of 21st Century Fox Inc.'s FOX in several allegations of breach of contract. The ruling came out after DISH and FOX asked the court on Jan. 15 to put their lawsuit on hold. The companies' current retransmission consent agreement is set to expire on Oct. 29; DISH had settled allegations similar to those made by FOX with Walt Disney Co.'s ABC and CBS Corp. when their respective retransmission consent agreements came up for renewal.
Judge Favors DISH in Tentative Ruling over AutoHop Spat with Fox
Oct 21 14
U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee tentatively sided with DISH Network Corp. in its dispute with Fox Broadcasting Co. over the AutoHop feature that lets users skip commercials. At an October 17, 2014 hearing, Gee reportedly said the AutoHop service does not infringe Fox Broadcasting's copyrights and is fair use as per the U.S. Supreme Court's 1984 decision in Sony Corp.'s Betamax case. However, the judge declined to give a final ruling on the two companies' request to resolve Fox's copyright infringement and breach-of-contract claims ahead of a trial scheduled in January 2015. Fox alleges that DISH's PrimeTime Anytime, the AutoHop ad-skipping feature and Sling place-shifting technology infringe their copyrights and breach their retransmission consent agreements.
