    More "illegal" Spanish rebroadcasters shut down by police

    The National Police have arrested 60 people in connection with an investigation against the piracy of pay-TV channels. Among those arrested include hotel managers and presidents of neighboring communities that have defrauded a total of several million euros.



    It appears that ont only wrere these systems providing pay tv channels via "web streaming", but as a result of this investigation it was discovered that several local cable networks in Tenerife, Malaga, Cadiz, Cordoba and Granada, were 'rebroadacsting' specific channels and content to its subscribers, without the required authorizations.

    Re: More rebroadcasters shut down...

    and there is more....from a local news site

    The one common denominator of all these rebroadcasting companies is that they rebroadcast Free To Air (FTA) television signals however; none of them seem to be able to provide legal paperwork stating that they have paid for the rights from each and every one of the FTA channels to do so. BBC and ITV have stated that they do not have the rights to sell on their own channel rebroadcasting rights as they themselves negotiate rates with hundreds of individual production companies for the UK rights and these do not cover Europe. Confused? No wonder it’s taking so long to come to the Spanish Court system!

    The problems stem from making a profit from charging monthly subscriptions for such a service. The grey area seem to be the understanding, or lack of it, as to what constitutes a ‘legal channel’. Ask those in the UK what a ‘legal’ channel is and they will mostly say “one that all rights or production has been paid for”.

    The first nail in the rebroadcasting coffin may be that the Spanish Secretary of Telecommunications is now aware of the rebroadcasting of the Torresat Group amongst others and that the distributor Filmax is considering taking action against those using their content without the correct licences in place.

    BBC on "illegal" Spanish rebroadcasters

    A SPOKESMAN for the BBC said last week that the corporation takes the illegal broadcasting of its programmes in Spain 'extremely seriously'.

    The statement comes after 60 people - including a number of Britons - were arrested across Spain as part of a National Police crackdown on the redistribution of pirated television transmissions.

    The BBC spokesman told CBNews: "I can confirm that there are no official rebroadcasts of BBC public service channels in Spain.

    "I'm afraid I can't comment further on prosecutions other than to say that the BBC takes these matters extremely seriously."
