Seven people have been arrested in Spain for card sharing.
The arrests, in early April 2016, were made in several Spanish cities: Madrid, Terrasa, Toledo, Córdoba and Cuevas Bajas in Málaga.
The arrested people used card-sharing, where one of them legally subscribed to a pay-TV platform, and then gave illegal access to content from his subscription to many others using manipulated satellite receivers connected to the internet and their card sharing servers.
The seven arrested advertised their service online. It is thought that their customer database may be used to identify those people who were using their system.
The police operation started following a claim from La Liga warning of the existence of the pirate network.
