On February 20, 2015 the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey granted DISH Network and NagraStar’s motion for final judgment against Rajbir Sidhu. Sidhu was sued by DISH Network and NagraStar for federal claims arising out of his subscription to the NFPS IKS service. The Court’s order includes a permanent injunction against Sidhu as well as an award of $10,000 in statutory damages (the maximum damages per violation) under the Electronics Communication Privacy Act and an additional $1,200 in costs and fees. 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.
