Man jailed for selling pirate streaming devices that were “falsely advertised as legal”, Premier League announces

Jia Xiaofeng, the director of Singapore-based electronics retailer Synnex Trading, was sentenced to 12 weeks behind bars this week, after being reported by Neil Gane, the general manager of the Coalition Against Piracy.

Xiaofeng has also been slapped with a SGD $5400 (~£3060) fine, though Synnex Trading has to cough up an additional SGD $160,800 (~£91,250).

“The boxes were found to have been loaded with apps providing unauthorised access to films, TV shows, video-on-demand and live sports including Premier League football,” the Premier League announced. “These ISDs were falsely advertised to the public as legal and containing legitimately sourced content.”

The Premier League, FACT and other piracy-fighting organisations have consistently claimed that many users of illegal streaming devices − often known as ‘Kodi boxes’ − aren’t aware that they’re illegal.
