Further to a previous story (http://www.satandpcguy.com/forum/showthread.php?66504)
on a huge card sharing networks being closed down on Cyprus, another network on Cyprus has been closed down.

I am sure that it can only be a matter of time before those cardshare companies here in Spain, many offering Sky TV with a black box" (and showcasing it in markets), start to get sweaty hands and nervous.

Again, unlike in Cyprus, I am unsure if Spanish law means allows clients found using cardsharing networks are also liable for prosection.

LIMASSOL police yesterday arrested six men – including two foreign nationals – on suspicion of providing subscription television illegally.

Police believe they are connected to two other suspects arrested earlier this month for the same reason.

The men are suspected of illegally supplying subscription channels Sky UK, BFBS and Nova Greece for a fee.

They were arrested during a police raid yesterday during which officers seized six servers, a number of computers and other equipment.

“The servers seem to be connected together so that if one was put out of operation the signal would continue to be broadcast through the others without the subscribers noticing,” police spokesman Michalis Katsounotos said.
