    The Chilean Senate approved, by 17 votes in favor and one abstention, the initiative that modifies the General Telecommunications Law to set penalties for the illegal decoding of satellite pay TV signals. The regulation establishes that anyone who commercialize or distribute a protected pay TV signal illegally, or who, in the same way, import, distribute or commercialize tangible or intangible devices destined to the decoding of those signals will be penalized.

It does not seek to persecute customers, but penalizes those who profit from the business of satellite pay-TV piracy.”
