    "In case you thought the "Anonymous" hackers were the only ones taking control of websites, the United States Government has flexed its muscle in a recent crackdown on illegal video streams among popular websites such as firstrowsports.tv.

    Yahoo! News has the report:

    Three days before Super Bowl XLVI, U.S. prosecutors said they seized 16 websites that illegally streamed live sports and pay-per-view events over the Internet, and charged a Michigan man with running nine of those websites.

    The defendant charged in the case is Yonjo Quiroa, 28, who faces one count of criminal infringement of a copyright.Prosecutors said Quiroa, also known as Ronaldo Solano, operated his websites from his home in Comstock Park, Michigan, prior to his Wednesday arrest, receiving at least $13,000 from online merchants who advertised with him."
