AFTER receiving a formal complaint from a distributor of digital television programming in 2015, officers of the National Police undertook a serious investigation into the illegal streaming of sporting events within Spain.

It transpired that a website was offering the free streaming of sporting events without authorisation or obtaining a licence so officers have arrested the person responsible together with five other people allegedly partners in the activity.

Searches took place in properties in A Coruna, Barcelona, Cadiz, Gerona, Madrid and Malaga where a number of computers and other devices were found together with details which allowed the investigators to block 15 bank accounts said to contain €11 million.

In what was something of a twist, the man said to be behind the whole breach of intellectual property rights and three colleagues when arrested were all wearing wigs, glasses and motor cycle helmets.
