ABSTRACT
France's Canal Plus pay TV group has introduced an antipiracy system it says will put an end to the theft of films and other programs broadcast by satellite. The pay TV group said the pirating of its broadcasts is particularly prevalent in North Africa, where an illegally modified set-top box can be used by pirates to take advantage of a technical flaw in a contribution signal not intended for the general public. According to Canal Plus, the new system has made that signal inaccessible to pirates.
