Netflix, Amazon and Hollywood Sue “SET TV” Over IPTV Piracy

Amazon and Netflix online cinemas, as well as a number of Hollywood studios united in the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE) filed a lawsuit against SetTV (Florida), a provider of IPTV service SetTV, accusing her of promoting massive copyright infringement.

The plaintiffs demand damages that could reach several million dollars, as well as an injunction against the defendant’s unlawful activities, informs Torrentfreak.

Copyright issues:

ACE claims that Set TV software is a “copyright infringement tool.” The lawsuit states that the defendant sells subscriptions to the Setv now service with an application that customers can use as a tool for massive copyright infringement of films and TV content.

In addition to software, Set TV, the Premium iptv also offers a set-top box, through which you can access VOD content from movies that are still rolled in cinemas.

Plaintiffs also claim that the defendant advertises Setv now in its promo on popular YouTube channels as “the fastest and easiest way to access new releases”.

Site Set TV with subscriptions to the service is still available. Set Broadcast does not comment on the lawsuit.

ACE in recent years has stepped up efforts to combat piracy. So, lawsuits were filed against distributors of consoles Dragonbox and Tickbox.

Things changes according to latest lawsuit:

Amazon and Netflix online cinemas, as well as a number of Hollywood studios united in the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment, sued SetTV’s IPTV service provider Set Broadcast (Florida), accusing it of massive copyright infringement, and simply put piracy.

Companies demand damages of several million dollars, as well as an injunction against the defendant’s unlawful activities. The lawsuit clarifies that the defendant is selling subscriptions to the Setv now service with an application that customers can use as a tool for massive copyright infringement of movies and TV content. In addition to the application, Set TV offers a set-top box, through which you can access VOD content from movies that are still rolled in cinemas.

Set Broadcast has not yet commented on the lawsuit. But it seems to me that Amazon and Netflix plan to build a precedent on this matter, with which it will be possible to work on the territory of the country as forest nurses of the Internet.
