Industrial Scale Piracy
Thaks Jeff, this is a great little article that outlines the industrial scale of piracy we are seeing globally.  Many of these pirates are operating at a level of sophistication that makes it harder for consumers to recognize they are illegal.  The best way to recognize a Pirate Broadcaster is that if the deal looks too good to be true, e.g. 500+ channels and all the sports events you want for $20 a month it has to be illegal.  

Looking forward to reading any future articles on this issue in Light Reading.  Thanks.
