Judge Favors DISH in Tentative Ruling over AutoHop Spat with Fox

U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee tentatively sided with DISH Network Corp. in its dispute with Fox Broadcasting Co. over the AutoHop feature that lets users skip commercials. At an October 17, 2014 hearing, Gee reportedly said the AutoHop service does not infringe Fox Broadcasting's copyrights and is fair use as per the U.S. Supreme Court's 1984 decision in Sony Corp.'s Betamax case. However, the judge declined to give a final ruling on the two companies' request to resolve Fox's copyright infringement and breach-of-contract claims ahead of a trial scheduled in January 2015. Fox alleges that DISH's PrimeTime Anytime, the AutoHop ad-skipping feature and Sling place-shifting technology infringe their copyrights and breach their retransmission consent agreements.
