The battle over the DVR that automatically Kansas City Chiefs Caps skips commercials exploded in a flurry of lawsuits Thursday waeaw425.Fox, NBC and CBS separately sued Dish Network in California seeking to enjoin Dish's Auto Hop service on grounds that it violates their copyrights and contractual agreements to retransmit programming.More importantly, they argue that by giving viewers a simple way to erase all commercials when playing back automatically-recorded primetime shows, Dish was threatening the economic ecosystem that makes commercial television programming possible. (A spokeswoman for ABC said the network Miami Dolphins Caps was monitoring the situation.)Dish, headed by the mercurial and litigious Charlie Ergen, meanwhile sued the Big Four networks, claiming that threats of
Litigation by the broadcasters was stifling their innovation Minnesota Vikings Caps, which was nothing more than an improvement on the video cassette recorder. Dish is seeking a declaratory judgment in New York that it wasn't infringing on any copyrights and is in compliance with its agreements with the networks.Consumers should be able to fairly choose for themselves what they do and do not want to watch, David Shull, Dish senior VP of programming said in a statement. Viewers have been skipping commercials since the advent of the remote control; we are giving them a feature they want and that gives them more control New England Patriots Caps.Dish noted that in addition to reports of legal actions, CBS, Fox and NBC have rejected ads for Dish's Hopper DVR, the devices with the Auto Hop function.
