Rupert Murdoch and twice arrested executive/mistress Rebekah Brooks
Rupert Murdoch's News Corp has been exposed for hiring, "A consultant to post the encryption codes of ITV Digital, a key rival of the then Sky TV, on his website. Widespread piracy after the online publication of the codes contributed to the 2002 collapse of ITV Digital, which had been set up by the parties that later formed ITV, Britain's leading free-to-air commercial broadcaster, in 1998. BSkyB, now Britain's dominant pay-TV broadcaster, is 39 percent owned by News Corp. Murdoch sits on NDS's board."

In this case a "consultant" is code for a "computer hacker" from Europe that broke into the computers of ITV, copied, then post the rival company's copyrighted codes/intellectual property that runs their service. News Corp is such a ruthless, shameful, dirty company with no integrity or standards.
Rupert Murdoch and third wife Wendi
This hacking and harassment is what I have been writing about for years. The Murdoch family is villainous and contemptible, as they go about criminally sabotaging and robbing other companies and their executives. They believe in breaking the law via malicious computer hacking, phone hacking, wiretapping, roving bugs (mobile phones bugs that secretly listen to conversations any room the phone is present), hidden cameras secretly planted in homes and offices, drones and stalking, via a team of violent, felonious private investigators and their thugs, (who have serious criminal records) to infiltrate, rob and dismantle any company they deem a competitor, with the goal of driving them out of business and stealing their assets.
This type of criminal conduct is detrimental to business everywhere. It damages nations, economies, companies and families. For every company with millions or billions in assets, whether intangible or tangible, the Murdochs criminally destroy or damage, then rob, represents jobs gone from global economies, as they are engaging in these blatant crimes in Britain, America, Australia, Canada and the Caribbean. What kind of evil, abominable family does something like that. That sick, greedy family is a menace to society. They need to be locked up for the economic and public safety of the world, as they believe in financial crime and violence to get ahead.
Why are the Murdochs so nasty and perverted to be spying on people to these terrible extremes. The Murdochs should be forced to register as sex offenders for having private investigators stalk and film rivals' underage children, as they did to an attorney representing victims in the phone hacking case - not to mention spying on people in their homes via phone hacking (secretly turning on the cameras on people's phones and watching them in different states of undress without their knowledge). You nasty buggers (Murdochs).
[Article background: this is another in the series of phone hacking articles the Judiciary Report has published, regarding a scandal I broke first in October 2005, via a police complaint I filed with the Metropolitan Police in London, England. 30 people have been arrested by the Metropolitan Police since the time I filed the complaint. However, the Murdochs and other key conspirators remain free and the FBI has not arrested anyone, though the crimes began and continue in News Corp's New York headquarters].
