Four arrested for leaking Game of Thrones episode in India

Four arrested for leaking Game of Thrones episode in India

Four people in India have been charged with criminal breach of trust and computer related offences for leaking an episode of HBO's Game of Thrones as reported by BBC, underlining the immense popularity of the fantasy show globally.

The arrests were made after Prime Focus Technology, which processes the streaming for online viewing service Hotstar, lodged a complaint that the fourth episode of season seven of the series was available online three days before its scheduled release which was on August 7th.

Out of four arrested men, three are current employees of Prime Focus while one is a former employee.

The Game of Thrones opener was pirated 90m times in three days.
