NEW YORK — A Walt Disney Co. unit sued Dish Network Corp., the second-largest U.S. satellite-TV provider, for copyright violations in connection with the distribution of movies on the Starz service.
Dish was accused of giving subscribers free access to the Starz, including copyrighted movies provided by Disney on the condition that Starz operate as a premium channel such as HBO, Cinemax and Showtime, the suit says.
