Major US Sports Leagues Identify Foreign Pirate Streaming Threats

Story :

When online piracy first hit the masses with Napster, Limewire, and later torrent sites, it wasn’t really a concern for sports leagues.

Most sports fans want to see their favorite players or teams live, not a day later when they already know the result.

Over the past years, live-streaming piracy has caught up with traditional media piracy. Pretty much every significant sports event can now be seen for free, through streaming websites or dedicated pirate set-top boxes.

This means that sports leagues have also taken an interest in anti-piracy enforcement. This became apparent once again last week when the Sports Coalition, which represents MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, and others, sent an overview of piracy threats to the US Trade Representative (USTR).
