ICE Cracking Down On Illegal Streams, Make Arrest

For all the folks looking to stream UFC 134 this weekend, be warned.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrested 19-year-old Mohamed Ali Tuesday morning for illegally streaming pay-per-view boxing, wrestling and MMA events, according to TheHill.com.

He was charged with one count of criminal infringement of a copyright for operating HQ-STREAMS.com and HQ-STREAMS.NET, which was seized in February.

Ali made more than $6,000 in profits from February 2010 to January 2011, according to court documents.

“Today’s arrest sends a clear message to website operators who mistakenly believe it’s worth the risk to take copyrighted programming and portray it as their own,” said ICE director John Morton.
