On October 17, 2017 the United States District Court for the Central District of California granted DISH Network and NagraStar’s motion for final judgment against Paul Jimenez.  Jimenez was sued by DISH and NagraStar in May 2017 for federal claims arising out of his purchase and use of IKS subscription codes to the unlawful internet key sharing service Nfusion Private Server (NFPS). The Court’s order includes a permanent injunction against Jimenez as well as an award of $10,000 in statutory damages under the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (“ECPA”) as well as an award of attorneys’ fees and litigation costs.  DISH 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.
