It has come to my attention that not everybody understands how important Nagrastar considers informants.

Take the case of ROM 10X. Snags was brought down and served a lawsuit in large part thanks to a group of internet undercover pirates that monitor internet web and chat sites. This group is made up of former sat tv hackers from the DTV and early DN/Bell days. Ron Ereiser (well known sat tv pirate and dealer from Canada) has formed a company by the name of Global Encryption Services. This company does internet research for Nagrastar. Mr Ereiser has at least 2 employees that he pays roughly $4100 per month or $50,000 per year to surf the net and find information relating to satellite tv piracy. Those 2 employees are Chris Gurlinski and Tony Dionisi (aka Vettr). These people spend any where from 15 to 20 hours a week looking for information related to satellite tv piracy and those involved in the hobby. Between those 3 people alone that is 60 hours a week or 240 hours a month looking for information of satellite tv pirates. Just think of the amount of information that could be compiled by those 3 persons alone. I hardly doubt that Nagrastar is limited to those 3 people alone. In fact we know from the NDS trial transcripts that Kudelski (nagravision) monitors the web sites and sends daily reports to JJ Gee.

Global Encryption Services or GES as it is known was the ones who monitored ROM 10X and turned over the evidence and/or information on that site and on over 60 people from that site. Think about that 60 people. That is a considerable amount of information. That is only 1 site, imagine what other sites and lists of people these groups working for Nagrastar have also accumulated over time.

Q So you're not aware and you cannot tell this jury of even one satellite pirate that has been prosecuted by law enforcement as a result of this reve
A No, but a great big Internet site was just taken down by the name of ROM 10-X. We gave a lot of information on over 60 people to JJ Gee about peopl
Q Let me try and ask my question again, Mr. Ereiser. You're not aware of any EchoStar pirates that have been prosecuted as a result of your reverse engineering.
A I know people that have been charged.
Q Anyone other than ROM 10-X?
A No. That was the biggest site so far


Q Earlier you testified when Mr. Snyder was asking you questions that Chris Gurlinski and Tony Dionisi were consultants of NagraStar. Do you recall that?
A Yes, I do.
Q Are you aware of NagraStar ever asking these consultants to commit acts of piracy?
A Sorry. Will you repeat that?
Q Yeah. You said that Gurlinski and Dionisi were consultants of NagraStar through your company, GES, correct?
A Yes
