The people behind TVAddons and the ZemTV Kodi addon have asked a Texas District Court to dismiss the piracy lawsuit filed by Dish Networks against them. Both defendants are foreign nationals who say they have no connection to Texas. The case, therefore, violates their due process rights, the defense argues.
Dish Network, a leading US TV provider with more than 13 million subscribers, is continuing its crackdown on unauthorized streaming services. In a pair of lawsuits filed in Maryland and Texas, Dish targets two illicit IPTV providers, claiming that each illegally captures and retransmits dozens of its channels to US citizens.
