On 30 November 2021, Stephen Millington was sentenced to a total of 30 months’ imprisonment following his guilty plea to a number of fraud and copyright offences relating to his creation and supply of software and add-ons which enabled thousands of his clients unlawfully to access premium television and film content.
This conviction is the first of its kind within this jurisdiction and marks a significant step forward in illicit streaming related anti piracy.
In this webinar, presented and recorded in November 2021, Ari Alibhai, the barrister instructed on behalf of FACT to prosecute this case, outlined the investigative steps and prosecutorial approach which led to this landmark conviction.
