[Judge Michael] Fitzgerald also rejects TickBox TV’s primary line of defense — that is merely a hardware company, and is no more responsible for copyright infringement than any other computer manufacturer.

The company also offered users step-by-step instructions on downloading the requisite software. – Gene Maddaus, Variety http://ift.tt/2ErYvUY
