set tv lawsuit

The ever-popular IPTV Service SET TV has been ordered to pay DISH Network more than $90,000,000 in damages according to a recent lawsuit against the company.

It appears SET has agreed to shut down services completely and hand over all equipment including set-top boxes with the software pre-installed, to go along with the $90 million charges.

TROYPOINT IPVanish 60% Off

This comes from June 2018 allegations that SET was using DISH’s channels and re-transmitting them through their service without permission. SET’s website has since been terminated.

If you have used SET in the past or are currently using an IPTV Service such as Area 51 or others, it is extremely important to always have a VPN installed and turned on.

While it is unclear whether or not these companies will pursue SET members, it is always better to aid on the side of caution. By using a VPN, your IP address and identity will be masked leaving no trace of who is using the streaming service.

TROYPOINT recommends IPVanish for all services that provide free or cost-effective streaming options.

In June of 2018, DISH Network along with NagraStar LLC sued SET on claims of illegally selling subscriptions and devices that used DISH channels without authorization. These actions violate the Federal Communications Act (FCA).

You can read the entire Complaint filed by DISH and NagraStar by CLICKING HERE which details SET Programming that transmitted messages which were used on DISH’s Service. This confirms the programming originated from one of DISH’s Channels.

In a judgment made by the court on October 24, 2018, DISH was awarded statutory damages of $90,199,000 in compliance with the FCA. This was calculated by multiplying the total number of SET subscribers (180,398) by $500 for each.

It also declares SET and its owners are permanently banned from receiving, retransmitting or copying any of DISH’s satellite transmissions or programming without permission. You can read the entire judgment transcript by CLICKING HERE or link below.

DISH vs. SET TV October 2018 Judgment

DISH in a statement regarding the judgment said, “The judgment and injunction against the SetTV service marks a significant victory in the ongoing fight against pay-TV piracy, and a win for consumers who subscribe to legitimate pay-TV services”.

This isn’t the first time the IPTV Service has come under fire. In April of 2018, SET was sued by numerous companies including Netflix, Paramount, Sony Pictures, Warner Brothers and more.

Below is a transcript of the lawsuit that was filed against SET TV in the state of California on 4/20/18.

3 LLC (“Netflix”); Paramount Pictures Corporation (“Paramount”); Sony Pictures
4 Television Inc. (“Sony Pictures Television”); Twentieth Century Fox Film
5 Corporation (“Fox”); Universal City Studios Productions LLLP, Universal Cable
6 Productions LLC, and Universal Television LLC, (collectively, “Universal”); and
7 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. (“Warner Bros.”) (collectively, “Plaintiffs”) bring
8 this Complaint against Set Broadcast, LLC d/b/a Setvnow, Jason Labossiere, and
9 Nelson Johnson (Labossiere and Johnson are referred to jointly as the “Individual
10 Defendants,” and the Individual Defendants and Set Broadcast, LLC are referred to
11 collectively as “Defendants”) under the Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 101 et seq.).
12 This Court has subject matter jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1331, 1338(a),
13 and 17 U.S.C. § 501(b). Plaintiffs allege, on personal knowledge as to themselves
14 and information and belief as to others, as follows:
15 INTRODUCTION
16 1. Defendants market and sell subscriptions to “Setvnow,” a software
17 application that Defendants urge their customers to use as a tool for the mass
18 infringement of Plaintiffs’ copyrighted motion pictures and television shows
19 (“Copyrighted Works”). Defendants tell customers that for “only $20/month,”
20 customers can “Stream over 500 live channels” of television and “Thousands of On
21 Demand entertainment options,” all with “No long term commitments,” “No
22 activation fees,” “No cancellation fees,” and “No credit check.” Defendants
23 encourage their customers to download and install Setvnow on their mobile devices,
24 computers, and other computer hardware devices.

9 2. To attract customers who would prefer a preloaded box, Defendants
10 also market and sell “ST-110 Set Top Box” computer hardware devices that come
11 preloaded with the Setvnow software. Defendants tell “customers who want more
12 of a cable box experience” that for just $89, they can “simply turn it on and watch
13 TV” without having to do anything more than “PLUG AND PLAY.”
14 3. Whether their customers choose a subscription or a preloaded box,
15 what Defendants actually sell is illegal access to Plaintiffs’ Copyrighted Works.
16 When used as Defendants intend and instruct, Setvnow gives Defendants’ customers
17 access to sources that stream Plaintiffs’ Copyrighted Works without authorization.
18 These streams are illegal public performances of Plaintiffs’ Copyrighted Works.
19 4. For the customers who use Setvnow, the service provides hallmarks of
20 using authorized streaming services—a user-friendly interface and reliable access to
21 popular content—but with a notable exception: the customers only pay money to
22 Defendants, not to Plaintiffs and other content creators upon whose copyrighted
23 works Defendants’ business depends. Plaintiffs bring this action to stop
24 Defendants’ intentional inducement of, and knowing and material contribution to,
25 the widespread infringement of Plaintiffs’ rights.

19 33. For its on-demand options, Setvnow relies on third-party sources that
20 illicitly reproduce copyrighted works and then provide streams of popular content
21 such as movies still exclusively in theaters and television shows.

23 downloads the Setvnow application on his or her laptop, mobile device, tablet, or

1 42. Defendants advertise Setvnow as a substitute for authorized and
2 legitimate distribution channels such as cable television or video-on-demand
3 services like Amazon Prime Video and Netflix. Defendants urge Setvnow
4 customers to stream infringing content. Defendants tell customers in promotional
5 videos that customers can “start enjoying live TV and videos on demand easily and
6 conveniently,”1 and that Setvnow will “provide the on-demand television shows and
7 movies that you were looking for.”2
8 43. Defendants also pay for sponsored reviews to reach a broader audience
9 of customers. For example, in one sponsored review with over 80,000 video views,
10 the paid reviewer explains to potential customers that “another huge win for Set
11 TV[3] is this on-demand feature and there are new movies, new releases that you can
12 see … so some things that you might have to rent somewhere else it’s free here in
13 your $20 subscription per month and your favorite TV shows are here too,”
14 including “some Netflix exclusive shows.” 4 In another sponsored review with over
15 120,000 video views, the sponsored reviewer promotes Setvnow as a quick and easy
16 way to access on demand movies: “You have new releases right there and you
17 simply click on the movie … you click it and click on play again and here you have
18 the movie just like that in 1 2 3 in beautiful HD quality.”5 This same reviewer

3 with over 64,000 video views exclaims to potential customers that Setvnow provides
4 “episode after episode of TV show after TV show and you can go and find the ones
5 that you want and of course the newer releases.”7 The review goes on to highlight
6 “the quality [and] the speed” of Setvnow, and explains that the service “work[s]
7 beautifully” because Setvnow “has their own servers which means they’re able to
8 put this out and do a good job with it.”8
9 44. Defendants release and promote software updates to the Setvnow
10 application as a means of ensuring the quality of streams through Setvnow. On their
11 Facebook page, Defendants explain that “Developers are currently doing a patch …
12 as we are trying to improve our service.”9
13 45. The commercial value of Defendants’ business depends on high-
14 volume use of unauthorized content through the Setvnow application. Defendants
15 promise their customers reliable and convenient access to all the content they can
16 stream; customers purchase Setvnow subscriptions based on Defendants’ success—
17 which Defendants tout and promote—in connecting their customers to infringing
18 content. Customers renew their monthly subscriptions because Setvnow connects
19 these customers to high-speed and high-quality streams of infringing content.

1 FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION
2 (Intentionally Inducing the Infringement of Plaintiffs’ Copyrighted Works,
3 17 U.S.C. § 106)
4 48. Plaintiffs incorporate herein by reference each and every averment
5 contained in paragraphs 1 through 47 inclusive.
6 49. Defendants intentionally induce the infringement of Plaintiffs’
7 exclusive rights under the Copyright Act, including infringement of Plaintiffs’
8 exclusive right to publicly perform their Copyrighted Works. As intended and
9 encouraged by Defendants, Setvnow connects customers to unauthorized online
10 sources that stream Plaintiffs’ Copyrighted Works. The operators of these source
11 repositories directly infringe Plaintiffs’ public performance rights by providing
12 unauthorized streams of the works to the public, including to Setvnow customers.
13 These operators, or others operating in concert with them, control the facilities and
14 equipment used to store and stream the content, and they actively and directly cause
