Jeff Horn vs. Terence Crawford: piracy police to use new technology to fight illegal streams

SOCIAL MEDIA’S piracy police will be out in force on Sunday, patrolling for signs of illegal streams in the much-anticipated bout between Brisbane boxer Jeff Horn and American challenger Terence Crawford.

While offenders risk fines of $60,000 or five years’ prison for streaming the Las Vegas match in Australia, tech giants and pay-per-view provider Foxtel will employ state-of-the-art technology and “world-leading surveillance” to track unsanctioned broadcasts and shut down piracy attempts.

Two Australian men previously apologised for illegally broadcasting the Anthony Mundine vs. Danny Green fight online to avoid prosecution, but it’s understood digital tracking technology has since improved so no unlawful streams last “more than a round,” and copyright holders are willing to prosecute offenders.

The biggest drawcard on the boxing calendar so far this year will begin at 10am on Sunday, and is expected to be broadcast at pubs across Australia, and through Foxtel’s Main Event channel for a $49.95 fee.
