Nevada Federal Court Orders Impoundment of Dongles and Access Data from Digital Warehouse, Inc., Satmonster.com, Coolsatellite.com and its owners/operators
On May 11, 2012 the United States District Court for the District of Nevada entered an Order directing the impoundment of various receiver dongles and access data being distributed by Digital Warehouse, Inc., Satmonster.com, Coolsatellite.com and its owners/operators. DISH Network and NagraStar sued the Defendants under the DMCA and Communications Act in December 2011. The Court entered a preliminary injunction against the Defendants in March 2012 which was followed by last week’s Impoundment Order. Discovery in the litigation is ongoing.
