Already in jail, an English hacker is still fined one million euros for football

Already sentenced to more than seven years in prison, an English hacker will have to pay back nearly £ 1 million or face up to six years in prison for the crime of illegally distributing Premier League streams.

In some cases of hacking, the defendants become real examples of those who were once convicted. In 2019, three Britons were convicted of selling illegal access to Premier League football matches. Steven King, who acted as the mastermind of the case, sentenced the three protagonists to a total of 17 years in prison. But that is clearly not enough. According to TorrentFreakThree years after his sentence, King is now being asked to repay 96 963,000 within three months (over one million euros) and face the risk of up to six years in prison.

5m in a decade

According to representatives of the Premier League – which is also one of the many broadcasters deceived in the story – the trio paid pirated subscriptions to more than 1,000 pubs, hotels and other establishments in the UK and Wales through its websites DreamBoxTV.co.uk and YourFootie. com. The scam could last for ten years and generate more than மில்லியன் 5 million for major stakeholders.

Steven King, in addition to his imprisonment and his new fine, will also have to return his passport if he refuses to pay the amount demanded. The specified amount, if refunded, should be donated by an English broadcaster, especially to public organizations dedicated to the fight against piracy. We can not do it again, the risks posed by pirates, especially those who provide illegal content, are of high importance.
