A Chinese national accused of operating a website that distributed more than $100 million worth of pirated software has pleaded guilty in the case, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Tuesday morning.
The case involving Xiang Li, 36, of Chengdu, China, is "one of the most significant cases of copyright infringement ever uncovered — and dismantled — by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations," ICE said Tuesday.
The defendant, who operated Crack99.com, was arrested by undercover U.S. agents in Saipan in 2011 and pleaded guilty late Monday to conspiracy to commit criminal copyright infringement and wire fraud, ICE said Tuesday.
