German Streaming Site Operator Sentenced to 3+ Years

While Kinox.to, the largest pirate streaming service in the country, remains operational, its former operator has been sentenced 40 months in prison. Only one person was caught so far – other operators were not deterred by the conviction and continue to run the site.

Back in 2014, German police carried out raids aimed to arrest the operators of Kinox.to, a popular illegal movie streaming service, as a part of investigation into the local piracy scene. Kinox.to ranked as one of the 50 most visited websites in the country and one of the largest piracy streaming sites across Europe. The police managed to catch only one site operator, while the other two are still on the run today, with the site remaining fully operational.

The unlucky Kinox.to operator, now 29, operated the service from the technical side. He has been detained for more than a year, and this week he was sentenced to 3 years and 4 months in prison for his involvement in Kinox.to. The trial against the operator was originally scheduled to continue until the end of January 2016, but it looks like the prosecution and defense reached an agreement to close the case early. The individual made a partial confession and was found guilty by the court for infringing the copyrights of almost 3,000 works. Moreover, he was accused of “hacking” computers of two rivals in order to promote Kinox on the market.

Aside from the prison sentence, the operator was ordered to pay more than 20,000 euros due to the profits he allegedly made, despite the fact that he claimed at the court he wasn’t involved in the site for the money, but rather for the technical challenge.

In the meantime, the public defenders representing the operator criticized the involvement of the German Federation Against Copyright Theft in the case, which assisted the police in their investigative work, claiming that they influenced the prosecution. However, the anti-piracy outfit didn’t pay much attention to such accusation, welcoming the court decision. The group applauded the police for the success and promised to help them in the future with similar efforts to ensure sound investigative work against copyright cybercriminals.

No avatarSounds like it's time to re-open Auschwitz and start putting these prosecutors and "police state" type commies in there.
