Interpol Searches for NinjaVideo Uploader

Interpol Searches for NinjaVideo Uploader

It’s been 5 years after the American authorities took down the popular video piracy service NinjaVideo. However, one of the key defendants is still wanted. The case of the video streaming and download website led to several prison sentences, and police continues to seek for the last suspect, who is now on Interpol's list of wanted criminals.

At the time, individuals connected to NinjaVideo were indicted by the American government on copyright infringement and conspiracy charges, which resulted in a number of convictions. For example, Hana Beshara, one the site’s founders, was given a 22-month prison sentence. It was the longest sentence, but it has already been served. Still, this doesn’t mean the NinjaVideo case is closed, because one of the indicted NinjaVideo members, Zoi Mertzanis, is still at large. According to the US government, Mertzanis was one of the most active uploaders on the site. Despite a few successful convictions and plea agreements, this Greek resident is still at large: the 40-year-old woman is now featured on “wanted” list from Interpol, which issued a “red notice” for Mertzanis, indicating that she’s wanted for extradition. According to industry experts, the former NinjaVideo founder is the only person associated with a streaming or download website on Interpol’s list.

Apparently, Mertzanis’ fugitive status also has negative consequences for the convicted colleagues who already served their time. Since the NinjaVideo case remains open, they can’t get back their personal items that were seized.

If you don’t remember, NinjaVideo shutdown has been one of the most prominent successes of the American government’s “Operation in Our Sites” campaign. If the Greek woman is caught and extradited, she faces a prison sentence of several months at the very least, if we can judge on the previous convictions. Hana Beshara received the harshest sentence – 22 months in prison and a payment of $210,000 in damages to the MPAA. In the meantime, fellow admin got 14 months of jail time and was ordered to pay back around $172,000 in damages, while a prominent uploader received 6 months in prison and $26,500 in restitution. Another person was not listed as part of the NinjaVideo conspiracy, but was also sentenced to 3 months in prison and ordered to repay the Motion Picture Association of America just over $58,000.
