Ukrainian Cyber Police Shut Down Illegal Streaming Service

Recommended Posts

Ukraine’s cyber police unit has recently shut down an unauthorized website that was infringing the copyright of four foreign film companies by illegally streaming movies and TV series. The officials seized computers and other equipment used to operate the website during a raid in the city of Zaporizhzhia in southeastern Ukraine.

A local resident had created and administered the streaming service by setting up a software module on his computer which collected data from third-party resources, automatically filling the website with video content without the right holders’ authorization. The operator also made profits by running advertisements on the website.

The pre-trial investigation is ongoing. The maximum penalty that the offender can face is up to two years in prison.
