The antipiracy teams of the two subscription channels, Nova and Cosmote TV, have achieved a major blow against the illegal viewing of subscription services.
Σύμφωνα με πληροφορίες, την Κυριακή 3 Σεπτεμβρίου, πραγματοποιήθηκε η πιο εκτεταμένη επιχείρηση φραγής πειρατικών ip, που είχε ως αποτέλεσμα να επηρεαστούν χιλιάδες τελικοί απλοί χρήστες/πελάτες παράνομης πρόσβασης σε συνδρομητικό οπτικοακουστικό περιεχόμενο από τα κορυφαία πρωταθλήματα ποδοσφαίρου (Stoiximan Super League, Premier League, Serie A, LaLiga,κ.α.), μέσω χρήσης παράνομων συσκευών και φυσικά επετεύχθη ένα μεγάλο πλήγμα στους παράνομους διανεμητές-πειρατές τέτοιων συνδέσεων.
In the matches of top leagues broadcast exclusively by the two providers (Cosmote TV, Nova), extensive ip blocking was carried out in 20 important illegal pirate networks with dozens of ips, in Greece and abroad.
The subscription platforms are determined to continue the dynamic actions throughout the year in a variety of subscription audiovisual content.
It should be mentioned that the illegal viewing of subscription services entails both for the illegal providers of pirated content and for the end-users severe criminal and administrative penalties and fines, of a felony and misdemeanor nature respectively, with important legal provisions from Greek and European legislation.
It is worth noting that as market sources argue, there is a significant threat to households and end users from the use of illegal pirated links, not only from their legal-criminal treatment but also from the threat to their personal digital security. By giving access to their home network environment to large pirate networks in order to connect pirated devices or illegal ip tv software, they are effectively "opening wide the doors" of their personal data.
Their personal data is placed in the hands of these criminal networks which, as it has been observed worldwide, these networks are allegedly related to many other illegal activities and of course with a penchant for organized crime. At the same time, with these illegal connections, households essentially become the financiers of organized crime, with a significant blow to the public interest.
Of course, these also bring about a correlation between illegal providers and end users, since in cases of arrests of pirated criminal networks, their digital and financial transactions are clearly revealed. It is more imperative than ever for the law enforcement authorities and the Greek state to protect these households, and by extension the public revenues and the national economy, which loses many millions annually from these illegal activities.
