On April 5, 2011 the Honorable Judge Neil V. Wake for the United States District Court in Arizona entered final judgment against Maurizio Nowlin in a case brought by NagraStar, DISH Network and EchoStar Technologies (“DISH Network”).  Nowlin was sued for his role in providing equipment to facilitate theft of DISH Network programming.  The judgment awards $17,798,400.00 in statutory damages to DISH Network and includes a permanent injunction prohibiting Nowlin from engaging in similar conduct in the future.  Under the terms of the Court’s judgment, Nowlin will be liable for an additional $110,000.00 in damages for each act of DISH Network piracy going forward.  NagraStar continues to investigate and take legal action against individuals involved in all levels of piracy support from the product manufacturers to down-stream end users.
