Chalk this one up as a partial victory for digital recording devices — a California Judge has ruled Dish’s ad-skipping Hopper device and Sling streaming technology do not infringe on 21st Century Fox’s copyrights.

With its AutoHop feature, Dish's Hopper allows users to automatically skip commercials after recording a program.
