Most of the major Hollywood movie studios are trying to cripple multiple alleged pirate TV services with a single lawsuit.

The studios last week filed a copyright infringement suit against Omniverse One World Television Inc., which provides streaming video to several online TV services. Omniverse claims to have legal rights to the content, but the studios say it doesn't.

The complaint was filed Thursday in US District Court for the Central District of California by Columbia Pictures, Disney, Paramount Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Universal, and Warner Bros. The studios previously used lawsuits to shut down the maker of a streaming device called the Dragon Box and another called TickBox. The studios' new lawsuit says that Omniverse supplied content to Dragon Box and to other alleged pirate services that are still operating.

Dealmaster: Take $340 off Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon ultrabook

Ars Technica - 50 min 37 sec ago

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, the Dealmaster is back with another round of deals to share. Today's list is headlined by a discount on the current-gen model of Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon notebook, which is down to $1,063 at Lenovo with the code "THINKPRESDAY." And yes, the coupon has to be in ALL CAPS for it to work.

Lenovo's on-site prices tend to fluctuate wildly, but the X1 Carbon typically goes for around $1,400, making this good for a roughly $340 discount. As of this writing, Lenovo is telling users to apply the code "THINKPRESIDENT," but the code above actually cuts the price by another $75 or so. Why? No clue, but the Dealmaster isn't complaining.

As for the X1 Carbon itself, it's great. You can check out our review for a full rundown, but in short, we said it ticked all the necessary boxes for a high-end Ultrabook. It's not a convertible, and there's no 4K option, but it performs well, gets good battery life, and has the necessary Thunderbolt 3 ports without ditching legacy ports like USB-A or HDMI. It's sufficiently thin (0.63 inches), light (2.49 pounds), and well-made, and its keyboard, as is typical of a ThinkPad, is excellent. Its big downside is that it's relatively expensive, but that's obviously negated here.
