Anti-Piracy

Hong Kong Customs take enforcement action against retail sellers of Illicit Streaming Devices (ISDs).

As part of Operation Trojan Horse, Hong Kong Customs recently undertook a series of raids against four retail outlets in Sham Shui Po and Wan Chai. Over a two-day period (25-26 May 2018), Hong Kong Customs raided retail outlets and arrested four (4) shop owners and four (4) salespersons found to be selling pre-loaded TV boxes (also known as Illicit Streaming Devices – “ISDs”) which provide access to pirated movies and TV shows. The arrested persons were all charged with copyright offences. Over 350 ISDs were seized, including brands such as the Ubox, EVPad, BossTV, and Magic Box.
