    Pansat/Panarex settle lawsuit with DISH Network/Nagrastar for $121 million

    Permanent Injunction Bars FTA Distributor from Trafficking in Satellite Piracy TechnologyENGLEWOOD, Colo. — April 12, 2010 — DISH Network L.L.C. and NagraStar L.L.C. secured another significant victory today in their fight against satellite piracy.
    On March 30, 2010, the United States District Court for the Central District of California entered a $121,699,800.00 judgment and permanent injunction against Panarex, Inc. and its president Won Tak Kim in a lawsuit accusing Panarex of selling Free-to-Air satellite receivers and other devices used to pirate DISH Network’s programming. The permanent injunction bars Panarex and its officers from trafficking in similar devices in the future and from any further involvement in facilitating DISH Network piracy or unauthorized use of proprietary technology supplied by NagraStar or NagraVision.
    Panarex also agreed to forfeit its remaining inventory of the Pansat branded receivers at issue in the litigation (which were manufactured by Global Technologies, Inc. in Korea) as well as ceasing any current or future business dealings with Khachik Bagdasaryan and his company Digital Technology Depot. Bagdasaryan has been sued by DISH Network and NagraStar in a separate suit pending in the same Court for his involvement in the distribution of piracy software files which were used in conjunction with Pansat receivers to gain unauthorized access to DISH Network programming.
    The lawsuit was filed against Panarex in 2007.
