Fox has petitioned a federal court in California to put a halt to DISH Network's Hopper DVR, saying its new streaming and recording features are in violation of the satcaster's pact with Fox and copyright law. "DISH's licensing agreement with Fox gives DISH only the limited right to retransmit Fox's live broadcast signal over DISH's satellite television distribution system," Fox wrote. Fox previously had sought to block the DVR because of its ad-skipping feature.
