Brit whacked with £16,000 check for illegally streaming Sky Sports online

A BRITISH CHAP has been systematic to compensate £16,000 for illegally streaming Sky Sports online, as a UK’s crackdown on ‘piracy’ continues.

The Independent has a dip and reports that a UK High Court this week ordered Mr Yusuf Mohammed, from Bristol, to compensate authorised costs of some-more than £16,000.

Mohammed has also been systematic to divulge sum about a income he done streaming Sky Sports content, according to a report, along with sum about anyone he colluded with during a operation.

FACT, a UK’s egghead skill insurance body, is unsurprisingly contented about a ruling. CEO Kieron Sharp said: “This is a latest movement taken in a ongoing crackdown on bootleg digital piracy.

“It should now be transparent clear to anyone meditative of pirating or examination a pirated tide that this is not a grey area and that it is illegal.”

This statute comes only weeks after Brian Thompson, an 18-year aged wiring seller from Middlesborough, was whacked with an 18-month dangling judgment after pleading guilty to charges compared to a sale of supposed ‘fully loaded’ Kodi boxes.

Issuing a statute during Teeside Crown Court, Judge Peter Armstrong said: “If anyone was underneath any apparition as to either such inclination as these, entirely installed Kodi boxes, were bootleg or not, they can no longer be in any doubt.

“I’ve come to a finish that in all a circumstances, an evident custodial judgment is not called for. As a warning to others in future, they might not be so lucky.”

According to FACT, a entertain of a UK race access digital element illegally, while some-more than one million Brits purchasing ‘illegal’ set-top boxes over a past dual years.

In a new report, it warned that many “don’t understand” a risks compared with supposed ‘piracy’, that if a UK supervision gets a way, could embody a 10-year jail sentence. µ
