Italian Police Shut down 50 Streaming Websites, Arrested 5 Operators

Italian police have carried out a large operation targeting a network that sells subscription to live sports, films and TV shows on the Internet without permission of copyright owners. They targeted 50 websites running on 41 servers located all over the globe. They also detained 5 suspects in the alleged 40m euro business.

Torrents are still popular and account for millions of file-sharers. However, cheaper bandwidth and faster speed connections facilitated the rapid growth of streaming services. Today you can find thousands of services streaming illegal content available via a YouTube-like interface and any browser. They become very popular among the Internet users who do not always realize they breach the law, so the copyright owners have to take efforts to hinder their operations. Millions of links are being removed from search engines, sites are being blocked at the ISP level, and other options are also explored on a regular basis.

Prosecutors in Rome announced they have carried out a large operation aimed at shutting down a network of websites offering video content without permission from copyright holders. Dubbed Operation Match Off 2.0, it was carried out by the department under Italy’s Minister of Economy and Finance, which deals with financial crime. They targeted 50 websites running on 41 servers, three of which were seized locally in Italy. After the raids, 5 suspects were also detained. This network of sites was offering live streaming of sports and on-demand video content for a 10 euro monthly subscription fee, while the equivalent official subscription would cost 10 times more expensive.

The police claim that the five suspects had built a huge user base and were generating big profits from them. They estimated the user base as 340,000 people within a community. If we assume that each of them had an illegal subscription, a simple calculation will tell us that the turnover is about €3.5m per month, or more than €40m per year. And they say The Pirate Bay that distributes content for free is evil?..

If found guilty, the five Italian suspects would face huge fines and up to 4 years of jail time.
