Sonicview Motion to Dismiss denied
A federal judge denied Sonicview’s motion to dismiss DISH Network and NagraStar allegations that Sonicview violated the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, stating “the Court also notes with respect to Defendants’ contention . . . the Court has found, based on evidence, that Plaintiffs were likely to prevail on the merits of this claim” in an order issued on June 24, 2010.
The Court underscored that the evidence presented by plaintiffs showed Defendants’ actual involvement in piracy and highlighted Sonicview’s sale of 8PSK Turbo Boards. Concluding its order, the Court stated that “Plaintiffs’ allegations, which are supported by evidence presented for purposes of the preliminary injunction motion, are sufficient . . . . For the reasons stated above, Defendants’ motion to dismiss Counts I and III of the complaint is DENIED.”
