Dish Network v ABC to continue

In the declaratory judgment action brought in Manhattan by Dish Network against ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox, the Court has ruled that the action will be discontinued as to Fox, so that the issues between Dish and Fox can be litigated in California, in a copyright infringement action commenced by Fox hours after the declaratory judgment action had been initiated. The claims against ABC, CBS, and NBC, the Court ruled, would proceed.

Why don’t CBS, FOX, and NBC execs want consumers to enjoy commercial-free TV? It’s what we want! I’m a customer and employee of Dish, and I think Auto Hop is great because you can easily watch commercial-free TV. A well-known consumer advocacy group, Public Knowledge, agrees that people should have the right to control how they watch TV. They’re taking a stand for consumers by creating a petition that tells CBS, FOX, and NBC media to keep their hands out of your living room and DVR. Sign their petition to keep control of how you watch TV http://bit.ly/KFdn1Q
