DIRECTV says it's won a $1 million judgment against an Indiana man who was
one of several people accused of trafficking in illegal signal theft devices
following a series of raids last year.
"Li Sang, of Westfield, Ind., agreed to the judgment last month in a
California Federal District Court and has forfeited more than $660,000 in
funds seized in a raid last year, along with other assets, including the
value of the equity in his home," says DIRECTV.
"Sang, who operated a business known as Smart Card Solutions, was among
several defendants who were targets of a series of civil seizures and
impoundment orders in California, Texas and Florida that recovered an
estimated $4.6 million in contraband.
Two other defendants from that case settled with DIRECTV for more than $1.1
million. The defendants, including Sang, advertised and sold signal theft
devices over the Internet and provided software programs for illegally
modifying DIRECTV access cards."
The company added that the case against Sang and the other defendants was,
"only one of multiple civil actions and seizures brought by DIRECTV against
signal theft pirates last year."
