Shiver Me Timbers…UFC busts PPV pirate site, and now they’re coming after YOU

Posted: February 11, 2014 in Latest news

ufc-piratesUh oh. The UFC just shut down cagewatcher.eu, a website that offered pirated free streams of UFC PPVs. And guess who they’re coming after next…YOU! Well, maybe. UFC attorneys have supposedly obtained long lists of fans who illegally watched the events from this website, and they are feeling litigious. Meaning you might be in a shitload of trouble.

They want their damn money. So if you are one of the thousands of fans too cheap to pay the 50 bucks; or too socially awkward to go to a sports bar, you might want to get your affairs in order. From what I heard, the UFC will pursue the death penalty for each offense. So if you watched UFC 145 in your mom’s basement without paying for it, start thinking of what your last meal will be—I’m guessing chicken fingers and pancakes.

Here’s the full release/statement from Zuffa:

LAS VEGAS – As part of the on-going initiative against online piracy, Zuffa, LLC, owner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) organization, successfully took down and seized the records of http://www.cagewatcher.eu, a website that illegally streamed two UFC pay-per-view events.
 
UFC has obtained details of the streaming site’s userbase, including email addresses, IP addresses, user names and information pertaining to individuals who watched pirated UFC events including UFC 169. Also recovered were chat transcripts from the website. Using this data, UFC will work with Lonstein Law Office to prosecute identified infringers.
 
Lonstein Law Office has successfully prosecuted hundreds of claims for the UFC organization for sites illegally streaming content and individual users since 2007. UFC’s status as the industry leader in pay-per-view television has helped it become a leader in cracking down on companies and individuals watching and facilitating the watching of pay-per-view events online, without paying.
