Lancashire police in IPTV crackdown...

Post by kaptin1 » Mon Dec 14, 2020 12:58 pm

https://www.lancashire.police.uk/news/2 ... ancashire/

More than 7000 residents, believed to have been using an illegal TV streaming service, are set to receive warning notices this week from Lancashire Police.

Our cyber-crime unit is issuing the warnings to subscribers of a service called IPTV which allows users to illegally stream premium channels at a reduced rate.

Subscribers will receive the Cease and Desist Notices this week, via email, asking them to stop using the service immediately.

The warning states that subscribing to these services is a crime which carries a maximum sentence of up to five years imprisonment and/or a fine, and consequently, a criminal record.

The notice, one of the first of its kind aimed at consumers of illegal streaming services, also makes clear that Lancashire Constabulary will monitor subscribers’ behaviour and an investigation will be launched if the email is ignored.

This action is part of an ongoing investigation designed to crackdown on illegal streaming and those profiting from it.

The list of subscribers to the IPTV service was discovered after officers carried out a warrant at an address in Lytham in June.

A 28-year-old man was arrested in connection with suspected illegal streaming of premium TV channels, fraud and money laundering. Two high value cars, designer clothing, jewellery and handbags were also seized from the address.

The man has since been released under investigation and enquiries continue.

Olivia Dodding from Lancashire Police Cyber Crime Unit said: “People who subscribe to these services might not realise that they are illegal, but the simple fact is that they are.

“What may cost you a relatively small fee, actually results in television producers and sports broadcasters losing millions of pounds which affects their ability to make and show sports events and entertainments series, which many of us enjoy watching.

“Anyone who subscribes to IPTV or any other steaming service should stop now to avoid facing prosecutions themselves.”

Is it illegal to subscribe to one of these? Or just using it? I’d imagine it’s almost impossible to prove someone has used it.

Yeah.... but it’s a gateway crime. Let them get away with this and they will be running girls on the streets and laundering money before you know it.

Is this REALLY important when we can see what’s happening on our streets week in week out?

Talk about going for the easy targets.

It will no doubt look good in some end of year statistical table but how about prioritising some real crime; knife crime, car crime, burglary to name a few.

I think the police should be able to investigate all manner of crimes, do others not agree? What makes people think that this means they’re not prioritising more serious crimes?

The Police and courts are more and more becoming just mouth pieces and debt collectors for corporations. It is easier, quicker and more profitable than keeping people safe.

If people are ripping off corporations they should be dealt with in the small claims court.

Not too many people left with good things to say about our police force, these days sadly.

Oh no, dad. What did you do?

I subscribed to an IPTV service.

I'll be serious for a moment. Criminalising people with up to five in prison, for what should be a copyright offence, is utterly OTT. End users of 'illegal' IPTV services should be dealt with under civil law, not the criminal court. The law is protecting the large corps here while also making itself look like an arse. I don't even use IPTV, but I'm very peed off to see the law used in this way. Fair enough, go for those at the top who are probably involved in criminal activity and money laundering, but end-users? It's ridiculous.

No one is going to prison to five years. It's unlikely they'll even follow it up. Just got lucky with the email addresses and did a press release, that's about it.

I'd be surprised if the guy running the IPTV even gets more than a fine.

Oh I'm fully aware of the unlikelihood of anyone being sent to jail, however, to threaten end-users with up to five years imprisonment is crass.

The Police aren’t threatening 5 years imprisonment. That’s the sentencing guidelines. Not set by the Police.

Did anyone actually read the article?

A 28 year old male has been arrested for fraud and money laundering in relation to this. So by streaming illegally, there is the possibility that you are funding more serious criminality.

I agree it’s very minor, but the Police are impartial. If a crime is being committed, whatever the level, then they are duty bound to investigate. In this instance, they have decided an email will suffice.

If people continue to subscribe and stream illegally, and are caught again further down the line, then it’s on them. Not the Police.

Can understand why the bloke running it is in trouble. It’s money from illegal activity which is into money laundering territory.

If I’m reading this correctly, they have seized a list of all all IPTV users from one guy and are going to contact them

I’m assuming after arresting this guy, his equipment was also seized meaning the service was stopped, so the people on that list would no longer be watching the IPTV that he provided.

How are the police going to know if those people are still watching?

When was the last time you seen a shoplifter dealt with? Security guards just watch them walk out. The police won't take action for anything under £200.

Last week at morrisons Skipton. They were all over him like a rash pinned to the floor...respectable looking chap to... technically he hadn't stolen anything as he was in the foyer area within the main exit doors. As he hadn't left the building. Massive overreaction imo.

I suppose we are assuming that, because we are continually told how absolutely strapped they are... If they have time to put into this, then we needn't worry about them catching proper naughty criminals...

Of course they should be able to investigate all manner of crimes, but it just seems this is easy compared to some other crimes they could be investigating. Anyone would think they are concerned about hitting targets... :roll:

Just like I'm potentially funding more serious criminality by owning a car that a local scrote would want to break into to nick the contents to sell for drugs? (happened last year... bang to rights with quality facial CCTV footage but not followed up)

I'm linked to a bloody cartel and I didn't even know!

This kind of crime is far more complex than you'd think and certainly a more protracted Investigation than the assaults/burglaries/thefts etc

Yep, they did it with me earlier this year...as one of them snuck down a side road with a camera catching me at 7:50am on the first weekend of lockdown (when everyone went crazy over buying bogroll) yet every evening round my way it's like Le Mans but alas....no plod to be seen

As for IPTV - surely it's not illegal to subscribe to one. I don't, but if I did I would be arguing that I'm entitled to subscribe to what I like and as long as I were to watch the free to air channels or ones which are already paid for in a separate room, then where is the offence. If you stream services which you haven't' paid for then maybe that's a different story. I'd like to see them challenge that is the case.

If it's illegal to stream services that you have stolen yourself, then it's just as illegal to stream services that you have paid someone else to steal for you. You can't get round the morality of it that way.
