Judge rejects injunction against Dish DVR

By The Associated Press Published: November 8, 2012

Dish's general counsel, R. Stanton Dodge, called the ruling “a victory for common sense and customer choice.”

Fox said in a statement said it was “gratified” that the judge found that Dish's copies infringed on its copyright and breached their contract. But it disagreed that making the copies did not cause irreparable harm.

“Dish is marketing and benefitting from an unauthorized (video on demand) service that illegally copies Fox's valuable programming,” Fox said in a statement.

The broadcasters argue that automated ad-skipping would deprive them of needed ad revenue, while Dish argues its new device just makes it easier to do what consumers do already on their own DVRs: record shows and skip through ads on playback.
