Swedish Streaming Site Operators Face $1.7m Fine

The former operators of the largest streaming site in the country Swefilmer are accused of facilitating copyright infringement on 1,400 films and face penalties of $1.7m. Two men, aged 22 and 25, have been prosecuted for infringement and money laundering offenses.

Their streaming service was founded 5 years ago and quickly became the most popular illegal streaming website in Sweden. Along with its peer Dreamfilm, it offered all the latest films and TV shows and captured up to 1/4 of all web TV viewing in the country. But last summer the operation of the sites faced troubles, when one of the operators revealed the police had raided him. At the same time, police continued to look for Swefilmer’s primary operator. Three months ago a Turkish national had been arrested in Germany on a secret European arrest warrant for receiving donations from users and setting up Swefilmer’s deals with advertisers.

Both operators have now been prosecuted by the police and accused of copyright infringement through illegal distribution of over 1,400 films. Besides, the primary operator stands accused of aggravated money laundering offenses due to his handling of Swefilmer’s finances.

According to the prosecutors, Swefilmer generated over $1.7m over the last 2 years. About 90% of that amount came from advertising, while user donations made up nearly $110,000. Sweden wants the site operator to forfeit the full amount and has already seized a $77,000 car and properties worth $233,000. Both operators could be sent to prison, but the younger man faces less serious charges and will be expected to pay back just $3,600.

This case is so far the most significant against a streaming portal in Sweden.
