[quote=“TT”]Article 74 of the Cable Television Act (有線電視法) states that those who illegally intercept cable TV content shall be penalized by paying a fine equal to two years of the basic cable rate. If the activity also causes losses to the cable TV system, the offender is also liable for civil damages.
Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Chu Fong-chi (朱鳳芝) has submitted an amendment to punish unauthorized users of cable services with a jail term of no more than five years.
Violators could also be fined NT$1.5 million (US$454,000). [/quote]
Now I think this is OTT … compared to the ridiculous fines of a few (ten)thousand NT$ they give polluters and other criminals, serious traffic violators (DUI) … smocks … :loco:
