    NagraStar and DISH Network continue to shut down pirate Web sites

    On March 21 Judge William J. Martinez and the Federal District Court of Colorado entered final judgment against Jason and Lou Caraballo and their company Meridian Satellite Systems, LLC. NagraStar and DISH filed suit against the Caraballo’s and Meridian Satellite on January 7, 2011 in an effort to shut down the websites www.meridiansatellitetv.comand www.meridiansatellitetv.blogspot.com as well as seeking statutory damages and injunctive relief. The complaint alleged violations of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other federal statutes in connection with the Defendants offering piracy products and services through their online sites. The Court’s Judgment ordered Defendants to shut down the sites, awarded damages in the amount of $775,000.00 and entered a permanent injunction against the Caraballos prohibiting them from any future involvement in theft of programming from DISH.
