Four on trial in Spain over piracy for site streaming films and series

The former administrators of three pirate film and series sites that became hugely popular went on trial Monday in Spain where they risk jail for violating intellectual property rights.

One association of audiovisual producers has estimated the damages they caused to rights holders at more than €500 million ($560 million).

The three websites concerned are seriesyonkies.com, peliculasyonkies.com and videosyonkis.com -- "series junkies", "film junkies" and "video junkies" in English.

The trial comes after Spain earlier this year adopted a reform easing the closure of sites that violated intellectual property rights more than once.
