On May 14, 2018 the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio granted DISH Network and NagraStar’s motion for final judgment against Jose Perez Santiago.  Santiago was sued by DISH Network and NagraStar in 2017 for federal claims arising out of his use of IKS codes to an unauthorized, subscription-based pirate television service known as Satlobo. The Court’s order includes a permanent injunction against Santiago, as well as an award of $10,000 in statutory damages under section 2520 of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act.  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, as well as those selling products or services that facilitate unauthorized access to that programming.
