Seven suspects indicted for illegally providing TV content (TW)

Seven people who were part of a group that was providing set-top box service were indicted Wednesday for illegally transmitting audio-visual content to their customers, the Taichung District Prosecutors Office said.

The seven suspects were the first to be indicted under Taiwan's Copyright Act since it was revised in March.

Taichung prosecutors said the seven suspects were part of a ring, led by a Taiwanese surnamed Ku (辜) who was conspiring with a member of China's video piracy syndicate to expand its illegal operations into Taiwan.

Under the revised Copyright Act, the maximum penalty for infringing on the economic rights of others by distributing audio-visual content via set-top boxes is two years in prison or a fine NT$500,000 (US$15,950).
