Chinese piracy ring operator sentenced after selling military-related software

On Tuesday, a Chinese national was sentenced to 12 years in federal prison for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and criminal copyright infringement. The sentencing is part of a plea deal with federal prosecutors over a massive software piracy ring. Once the prison term is complete, Xiang Li will be deported back to China.

According to court filings cited by Bloomberg News, Li is the first Chinese citizen to be “apprehended and prosecuted in the US for cybercrimes he engaged in entirely from China." Li was arrested in 2011 by undercover federal agents when he traveled from China to the United States territory of Saipan to make a sale.
