DEI Plays Integral Role in $51 million Judgement Against Satellite TV Pirate

Earlier this month, Robert Ward of Florida was handed a $51 million summary court judgement for violating the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the Federal Communications Act. The case arose out of a civil suit filed after Dish Network and DEI investigators found that Ward was stealing satellite signals, and helping others to do so by using online discussion forums.

The court found that Ward had violated the DMCA by distributing software designed to facilitate illegal access to Dish Network signals. In what will become legal precedent, damages were calculated according to the number of times files posted online by Ward were downloaded. Damages in the Ward case were awarded at a rate of $200 per download, but the DMCA allows for fines of up to $2500 per download.

DEI was instrumental in tracking the downloads of Ward's files, and in providing the expert witness reporting that proved Ward was behind the online aliases who posted the files. "This is a significant landmark in the fight against satellite piracy," DEI's manager of intellectual property protection services Dan Caban said. "The severity of the judgement will deter future pirates, and will assist in the prosecution of other targets whom we are currently investigating."

DEI's internet investigations specialists and proprietary software utilities continue to be an indispensible tool in the fight against satellite piracy and intellectual property theft. DEI's IP protection services are available to a wide range of clients. Any company with an online presence and a product to protect has a vested interest in protecting its intellectual property, and DEI has the experience and the tools required to offer a complete range of IP protection services.

DEI President attends launch of International Cybercrime Research Centre

Steve Rogers was one of several leaders of business, law, and government in attendance at the launch of the International Cybercrime Research Centre in Surrey, British Columbia on July 8, 2008. The Centre, which received a $350,000 startup grant from the government of British Columbia, is the result of a partnership between Simon Fraser University, the B.C. government, and the Society for the Policing of Cyberspace (POLCYB). The Centre will focus its initial efforts on combating online child pornography with scanner-like tools that seek early identification of child abuse images. The Centre will work to fight social networking abuses and economic cybercrime, and will conduct research in online identity management and critical infrastructure protection. It will also conduct research into online crime trends and develop innovative methods to report them. One of the most important contributions the Centre stands to make is in the realm of global cybercrime, where a lack of legislation makes combating international offenses particularly difficult. "International collaboration together with intelligence gathering and analysis are critical factors to the success of any online investigation," states Mr. Rogers, who heads up Canada's most effective online private investigations firm. The Centre's director hopes to develop cybercrime as a field of study at the graduate, undergraduate, and professional levels.
