Cable Pirates Indicted
from the big-scams dept
The biggest cable piracy scam group in the world, according to prosecutors, was indicted the other day. The story is fairly interesting, in that they imported cable boxes and descramblers, and then hid the money through various money laundering techniques. What I found interesting, however, is the defense they seem to be planning. It’s not clear, but they do mention pitching that they were “fighting the cable monopolies” and that this is a “complex area of communications law”. Time to get a new lawyer.
