UK Anti Piracy
works with TV companies and unwitting piracy facilitators
(such as eBay) to discover and remove counterfeit TV systems
- TV piracy.
We know that the pirates use and offer
systems using Kodi and XBMC to stream subscription TV or
CCcam to decode subscription TV.
UK Anti piracy works
with eBay and others to remove listings for Kodi, XBMC and
CCcam. However; to date the main issue has been apathy from
Sky TV. However, we will continue to report - take action
against the counterfeiters.
illegal CCcam service, a user purchases a dodgy TV Box,
installs specialist software and then subscribes to illegal
card sharing systems. this service is often advertised as a
"gift" or as an additional warranty.
Kodi and XBMC
systems are used to directly stream live TV or subscription
video directly from a dodgy website.
There are many
issues with Kodi, XBMC and CCcam pirate UK TV systems. Buyers are
dealing with "crooks" and are therefore providing criminals with
personal contact details, banking information etc. Also;
these systems can be used to deliver viruses and - or
malware to the buyers systems. This can be used for many
illegal purposes (such as accessing a buyers camera and
Microphone to record private moments or data).
From August 2016, we expect to also be able to
report counterfeiters directly to the UK Customs and Excise
(we are currently negotiating). This will obviously have a
massive impact on the profitability of this illegal trade
and should make potential pirate "think twice".
