On November 5, 2010, the United States District Court for the Central District of California ruled in favor of DISH Network L.L.C., EchoStar Technologies L.L.C. and NagraStar LLC (collectively “DISH Network“) in their case against Global Technologies, Inc. (“Global Tech”).  Global Tech was a Korean-based manufacturer of Pansat-branded satellite receivers which were imported into, and distributed throughout the United States.  The Court’s Order Granted DISH Network‘s motion for summary judgment and found that Global Tech’s receivers were primarily designed and manufactured for use in the theft of DISH Network‘s subscription-based satellite television services.  Based upon that finding, the Court awarded DISH Network $626,260,000 in statutory damages and entered a permanent injunction against future efforts by Global Tech to traffic in similar products or engage in other efforts to facilitate the theft of DISH Network‘s services.  NagraStar and DISH Network continue to aggressively investigate and take action against companies and individuals who are engaged in attempting to compromise their security systems.
