UK clampdown on device, content pirates

The UK’s Minister for Intellectual Property, Sam Gyimah, has highlighted the continued Government clampdown on users and providers of illicit streaming boxes who cause damage to the nation’s £92 billion (€103.45bn) creative industries.

It comes as the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) publishes its response to a Call for Views on illicit streaming. This finds that a number of recent prosecutions show existing laws are working. But the Government will push ahead with a range of measures to tackle the threats created by the infringement of intellectual property rights.
