  • Texas Man Faces $2.1 Million Damages Claim for Selling Pirate Boxes on Facebook

    Media giant ABS-CBN is requesting a default judgment against a Texas man who allegedly sold pirate streaming boxes through Facebook. The defendant, who's identified as Anthony Brown, was caught following an undercover operation and now faces a $2.1 million damages claim in federal court.

    ABS-CBN is the largest media and entertainment company in the Philippines, but it’s very active in US courts as well.

    In recent years the company has singled out dozens of streaming sites and services that offer access to ‘Pinoy’ content without permission, demanding substantial damages.
