    In August 2020, DISH Network filed a copyright infringement lawsuit in the United States against 'pirate' IPTV provider Universal IPTV. DISH tracked down three defendants to addresses in the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Germany but despite extensive efforts, could not engage the parties in legal battle. That has now resulted in a judgment in favor of DISH to the tune of $7 million.

    While the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment has built a reputation for shutting down pirate IPTV services by various means, US broadcaster DISH is more prolific when it comes to actual lawsuits.

    Over the years DISH has filed large numbers of civil lawsuits, some based on copyright law and others the Federal Communications Act. Some of these complaints are met by defendants who wish to engage in court but there are others that are completely one-sided affairs, with DISH doing all the legal legwork and getting very little in response.

    The case in question is an excellent example of the latter.
