DISH Wants $1,950,000 from the Kodi Add-On Developer “ZemTV”





For some time now, DISH has been suing the website TVAddons and the add-on developer ZemTV. Recently DISH settled the lawsuit against TVAddons with undisclosed terms. ZemTV went on to announce that they wouldn’t fight the lawsuit.

“I don’t have enough resources to fight this case completely with four kids that I am raising and anything more I do will seem to be submitting to the US Courts which I am not going to do unless I have enough money to fight the case,” the developer wrote in an email to TorrentFreak.

Now DISH has asked for a default judgment against ZemTV for $1,950,000. “The ZemTV service is retransmitting these channels over the Internet to end-users that download the ZemTV add-on for the Kodi media player, which is available for download at the websites and,” DISH’s lawyers said in their complaint.

Many are watching this lawsuit closely because it will set precedent for future lawsuits. A successful win for DISH will likely result in others using lawsuits to put an end to app and add-on developers who offer pirated content.
