The distributor of IPTV boxes, Jadoo TV, has lost a piracy lawsuit against DISH Network, as determined by the International Broadcaster Coalition Against Piracy (IBCAP). DISH Network accused Jadoo TV of conducting a large-scale, deliberate operation over several years to distribute channels without authorization. The California court found Jadoo TV and its CEO Sajid Sohail personally liable for direct, contributory, and vicarious infringement. Jadoo TV knew of the piracy and could have taken measures to prevent it, making the company responsible. Following these rulings, DISH has proposed statutory damages, Jadoo’s profits, legal costs, and a permanent injunction. Jadoo TV has declared bankruptcy as a result of this lawsuit. For users seeking legal IPTV streaming options, fuboTV, Philo, and Pluto TV are recommended.
IPTV box provider Jadoo TV and its CEO Sajid Sohail have lost a piracy lawsuit brought by the International Broadcaster Coalition Against Piracy (IBCAP) and its member DISH Network. The court ruled that Jadoo TV was accountable for direct, contributory and vicarious infringement and that Sohail was personally liable, which may have implications for Jadoo TV’s ongoing bankruptcy proceedings. The court found that Jadoo TV distributed channels exclusively licensed to DISH without authorisation, violating Section 501 of the US Copyright Act. DISH is now seeking damages, Jadoo’s profits, legal costs and a permanent injunction.
