Netflix, Amazon, and the major film studios have sued the makers of "The Dragon Box," a device that connects to TVs and lets users watch video without a cable TV or streaming service subscription.
"Defendants sell illegal access to Plaintiffs' Copyrighted Works," the complaint says.
When used as Defendants intend and instruct, Dragon Box gives Defendants' customers access to multiple sources that stream Plaintiffs' Copyrighted Works without authorization.
Dragon Media gives each Dragon Box customer "a user login and password to access 'Area-51 IPTV,'" an add-on that "can stream live television channels, including premium cable television networks and sports networks," the complaint said.
Netflix, Amazon, and the movie studios also recently filed a similar lawsuit against the makers of the similar TickBox device.
