MANHATTAN (CN) – NBC Universal and Fox TV say a Pennsylvania-based company is illegally copying their entire TV output, around the clock, and resells it on the Internet. Redlasso, based in King of Prussia, also illegally induces its clients to make clips of the shows, the networks say.
“In conducting its business and marketing itself, Redlasso not only infringes the Networks’ copyrighted content, but makes unauthorized use of the Networks’ famous trademarks and falsely conveys that Redlasso has been authorized by or has some affiliation with the Networks,” the federal claim states. “In sum, Redlasso is attempting to build a business by stealing the Networks’ programming and content and marketing itself as authorized to distribute publicly perform and publicly display – and in fact publicly performing, publicly displaying and distributing – purloined copies of the Networks’ programming and content.”
The networks are represented by Robert Penchina with Levine Sullivan Koch.
