Arrests in UK modified set-top probe

Director General of the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT), Kieron Sharp, added: “This joint operation in the North East sends a clear message to anyone involved in the sale of illegal TV streaming boxes that FACT, along with the police and Trading Standards, are taking this crime very seriously. Consumers need to be aware that these cheap pre-configured TV boxes are illegal. They are stealing copyrighted content and starving UK businesses from revenue, as well
as putting consumers’ devices at risk of malware and ransomware.” – Julian Clover, Broadband TV News
