IPTV Service SET TV Must Pay $7.6 Million in Piracy Damages

Story :

A California Federal Court ordered the now-defunct IPTV service SET TV to pay $7.6 million in piracy damages. In addition, the company is forbidden from operating a similar service in the future. The default judgment was issued in favor of several major Hollywood studios, Amazon, and Netflix, which filed the lawsuit last year.

Last year the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE), an anti-piracy partnership forged between Hollywood studios, Netflix, Amazon, and others, sued Florida-based SET Broadcast, LLC.

At the time, the company offered a popular software-based IPTV service and also sold pre-loaded set-top boxes.

While it was marketed as a legal service, according to ACE members SET TV’s software was little more than a pirate tool, allowing buyers to stream copyright-infringing content.
