Illegal streaming operators pay damages in Bangkok court

Story :

One Briton and a Thai national have pleaded guilty to infringing the Premier League’s copyright in Thailand and have paid significant damages totalling THB15million (about £385,000), in addition to almost THB7million in seized funds being forfeited to the State.

They have also been sentenced to pay over THB3million and sentenced to a total of three-and-a-half-years’ suspended prison sentences for crimes related to running the illegal operation.

The THB15million is believed to be one of the highest damage compensations ever paid in Thailand for copyright infringement.

The defendants pleaded guilty to multiple offences arising from their supply of illegal broadcasts, which included operating a major piracy network across Asia.
