Have Pirate IPTV Sellers on YouTube Lost Their Minds?: How Do They Get Away With Openly Offering Illegal Services On Youtube?
For followers of piracy and copyright infringement issues few developments fall into the ‘WOW’ category anymore.
When there are people in the UK using pirate IPTV services to access the BBC because it’s cheaper than paying for a licence, and can be setup in just 10 minutes, you know the digital entertainment market is in an untenable situation. Strangely, UK ‘Pirate IPTV Users’ favorite channels are “Free-to-Air”!!! https://torrentfreak.com/uk-pirate-iptv-users-favorite-channels-are-free-to-air-190915/
When La Liga distributed snartphone apps to show scores to fans last year, that secretly identify sports bars showing pirated footy matches, we knew the piracy war was heating up. https://www.npr.org/2019/06/12/732157537/spains-soccer-league-fined-for-using-app-to-spy-on-fans-in-fight-to-curb-piracy?t=1572909344450
With torrent and streaming services constantly getting sued or raided, often paying huge fines that only encourage the police to do more raids, we can be sure the attack on pirate content is not easing.
After the aggressive military-style raid and arrest by normally mellow New Zealand police on data-storage tycoon Kim Dotcom hit the headlines, pretty much anything is possible. https://www.wired.com/2012/08/kim-dotcom-raid/
Over the past couple of years, however, something so bizarre – so ridiculous – has been developing on sites like YouTube to make even the most outspoken of pirates raise an eyebrow. It’s the rise of the pirate IPTV seller and reseller ‘celebrities’ who are using the video platforms in openly promoting their businesses like a regular company might, with no attempt to disguise themselves. As everyone knows, anonymity is an essential component of successful piracy. So how and why is this happening? Do they know something we don’t know?

H&M to close its Vialia and Féliz Sáenz sites in Malaga and reopen in a combined store: Swedish clothing retailer H&M is to shut its two stores in the centre of Malaga and open a new two-floor site in the city’s revamped Centro Comercial Larios covered shopping mall.
The sites that will close are in Plaza Félix Sáenz, near the city’s main market, and at the Vialia mall, at the city’s main railway station.
The company has said that the change “is a natural development” and that staff will be relocated to other branches in Malaga province. The chain has already started liquidating stock at the two branches.
