Spanish police raid ISP


Spanish police officers have raided an ISP after a tipoff from the Premier League.

The ISP allegedly offered a subscription service to more than 100 international TV channels, including those for the top English football league, to hotels, bars and individuals, and via its website.

The ISP was situated in a shopping centre in Malaga.

Two English citizens managed the ISP from the UK and controlled the activities of their employees through a video recording system.

The representative of the Premier League informed Spanish police that the ISP had been participating in illegal activity. The representative handed over a decoder and a premium subscription, which had been purchased for €450, as evidence.
