    Wisconsin Federal Court Enters Preliminary Injunction Shutting Down www.AAAFTA.com

    On June 2, 2011, the United States Federal Court for the Western District of Wisconsin entered a Preliminary Injunction against the website www.aaafta.com and the site’s owner and co-Defendant Mark Bender. The Court’s Order required Defendants and all domain hosts to “immediately cease making the www.aaafta.com website and its contents available on the internet by taking the website and its contents offline, and to immediately freeze, preserve…the website and its contents” effecting a virtual seizure and impoundment of the site pending final resolution of the case. DISH Network, EchoStar Technologies and NagraStar filed suit against Bender and the website on April 28, 2011 for the site’s distribution of piracy-related software files and support. The Court previously granted NagraStar’s motion for a Temporary Restraining Order and virtual seizure of the aaafta.com site on May 13, 2011. NagraStar and DISH continue to investigate online sites and forums which promotes unauthorized reception of the DISH Network signal.
