In a major legal breakthrough, five individuals have been found guilty of operating Jetflicks, an illegal streaming service that mimicked Netflix and Amazon Prime. This service offered over 183,000 TV episodes and 10,000 movies for just $9.99 a month without proper authorization. Kristopher Dallmann, Douglas Courson, Felipe Garcia, Jared Jaurequi, and Peter Huber were convicted in Las Vegas for copyright infringement, with Dallmann also facing charges of money laundering.

The US Department of Justice reported that Jetflicks had a larger collection than Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, and Amazon Prime combined. By illegally copying hundreds of thousands of TV episodes, Jetflicks allowed its subscribers to watch content on various devices, promoting itself as having nearly any show or movie available on demand.

Utilizing developed software, the team obtained movies and television programs to illicit sites and saved them to their personal servers. They published additional episodes soon after that they premiered, in direct competition with proper streaming platforms. To conceal their illegal activities and prevent copyright issues, they rebranded Jetflicks as an aviation amusement company. This deception was extremely lucrative, as court records show Dallmann boasting about earning $750,000 in just one year. Over the next ten to twelve decades, their overall revenue might easily exceed $5-6 million.

despite making millions, Jetflicks did not pay for viewing rights, causing significant financial loss for intellectual property owners. The FBI started looking into Jetflicks in 2016, which resulted in its closure in 2019 and current charges.

This case highlights the significant damage illegal streaming services can inflict on the entertainment industry and the severe penalties for those involved.
