Just some news... Infomir were granted preliminary injunctions against two distributors selling Formuler set-top boxes in Germany.
The contested Formuler devices, among other things, emulated the MAC addresses of Infomir’s MAG set-top boxes. The Court prohibited the distributors from selling Formuler and other devices that emulated Infomir’s MAG set-top boxes.

The Formuler box emulates the MAC addresses of the Mag boxes. The court has stopped the distribution of Formuler and OTHER devices that emulate Infomir´s boxes.

I´d guess that as the injuction is stopping distribution only in Germany as far as i´m aware the Formuler boxes will still be available to buy elsewhere..
I don´t know what other boxes were mentioned.

The emulation allowed the Formuler and other boxes to use the Stalker Middelware and Ministra TV platform.

Infomir are now looking at other boxes and have written that they will not stop and are looking at other ways to protect its rights.
