The makers of Dragon Box have just joined the club of set top box makers that are being sued by Amazon and others for providing a means to stream unauthorized content across the internet. The Dragon Box CEO sees it differently and says his company is only providing the means to stream content from the internet and that it's not his fault if customers grab unauthorized content. I lean towards the Dragon Box side on this, but I'm going to withhold judgement until this makes it to court. Maybe all parties can reach some kind of middle ground.
"The commercial value of Defendants’ Dragon Box business depends on high-volume use of unauthorized content through the Dragon Box devices," the suit alleges. "Defendants promise their customers reliable and convenient access to all the content they can stream and customers purchase Dragon Box devices based on Defendants’ apparent success in delivering infringing content to their customers."
