Grand Jury Indicts 8 in Illegal Streaming Subscription Service Scheme
Defendants allegedly distributed content to Jetflicks and iStreamItAll subscribers without obtaining authorization from copyright owners.

The indictment charged eight people who allegedly conspired to violate federal copyright law through the creation of two of the largest unauthorized streaming services in the U.S. – Jetflicks and iStreamItAll.
