By Walt Hickey Skip Ahead Dish Network introduced a feature called AutoHop, which allowed users to skip commercials from DVR content. This feature led to a lawsuit first launched in 2014 from Salt Lake City-based ClearPlay, a company that offers bowdlerization services that allows its users to filter out sex, violence and drugs from streaming video, and has a patent to that effect. They argued that Dish was infringing on their patent, which is a "method of filtering multimedia content without altering the underlying video,” and a Salt Lake City jury agreed, finding Friday that Dish must pay
