POLICE have shut down two of Spain’s leading ‘pirate’ video streaming sites.

Complaints from 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros, Disney, Universal, Paramount and Sony led to the crackdown on peliculaspepito.com and seriespepito.com, which saw a combined 2.5 million visits per month.

Two men were arrested by police for questioning.

Spain has built a reputation for being lenient on copyright infringement, but tougher lines are set to be taken in the new year.
