“Free TV” box lawyer says video industry is “digging its own grave”

18 01 2018
The entertainment industry is lining up against the maker of a “free TV” box in a lawsuit that alleges piracy, but the defendant’s lawyer says the industry is in for a difficult and dangerous fight.

“I think this is a very, very dangerous lawsuit by plaintiffs,” lawyer Erik Syverson told Ars yesterday. “If the case does not go the plaintiffs’ way, they will have established very unfavorable law to their business models and they may be digging their own grave.”

Syverson represents Dragon Media Inc., whose “Dragon Box” device connects to TVs and lets users watch video without a cable TV or streaming service subscription.
