How can any self-respecting movie pirate let themselves be arrested during an operation named after the famous English Pirate Blackbeard? I would rather walk the plank than to face the humiliation of being the idiots facing 8 years in prison over pirated content.

Police in Brazil have carried out the second phase of Operation Blackbeard, a campaign designed to dismantle groups dedicated to online copyright infringement. Search warrants led to five arrests and the seizure of bank accounts connected to three streaming sites with three-quarters of a billion visits per year.
