On February 6, 2012 the United States District Court for the Central District of California granted DISH Network and NagraStar’s motion for default against Karapet Menemshyan.  Menemshyan was sued by DISH Network and NagraStar for federal claims arising out of her subscription to the Dark Angel services. The Court’s order includes a permanent injunction against Menemshyan as well as an award of $10,000 in statutory damages (the maximum damages per violation) under the Electronics Communication Privacy Act (“ECPA”) and an additional $1,200 in fees/costs. DISH Network and NagraStar continue to investigate and take action against those responsible for trying to circumvent the companies’ security system in order to gain unauthorized access to DISH Network programming.
