February 14, 2019
Members of the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE) filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of Central California (Western Division) today against OmniverseOne World Television, Inc. (“Omniverse”) and its owner, Jason M. DeMeo, for violating U.S. law by illegally streaming copyrighted content. The following is a statement regarding the litigation by Richard VanOrnum, ACE spokesperson:
“Omniverse’s illegal services, and the downstream ‘Powered by Omniverse’ entities, undermine the legitimate market for legal and licensed services, a harm that has grown as Omniverse has expanded. This action is part of a long-term effort to protect the thriving legal marketplace for creative content, which now offers 140 legal online services for film and TV content in the United States, and more than 460 around the world.”
The litigation continues ACE’s ongoing civil litigation efforts against piracy services and operators, including Tickbox and Dragon Box.
