Trials against persons running illegal IPTV services

During spring, there have been several trials against persons running illegal IPTV services.

The latest verdict concerns the service Sweden IPTV. The sentenced man said he was attracted to making money and therefore made contacts to become a seller. The court found him guilty of copyright infringement and sentenced him to conditional prison and day fines. The court also decided to forfeit 160 000 SEK and two bitcoin wallets on USB.

Earlier this year, the court also sentenced the person behind the IPTV service Mac IPTV to conditional prison and millions in damages to the rights holders. In short several new prosecutions regarding illegal IPTV are expected, and later in June, there will be a verdict against the persons behind Pongo IPTV.
