    The European Parliament is considering a draft resolution that requires online services to take pirated sports streams offline within 30 minutes. This includes a proposal to allow copyright holders to act as trusted flaggers. According to Pirate Party MEP Patrick Breyer, the plan is dangerous as it can cause massive collateral damage.

    No Court Order Needed

    The EU proposal doesn’t necessarily require judicial oversight and will involve more parties. This is something sports organizers will welcome, but it opens the door to overblocking as well, which occasionally happens in the UK too.

    That's just plugging one hole in the dam - does nothing to stop non EU servers to continue streaming.....thankfully, I use these services as I refuse to pay Sky, BT, Virgin etc a penny to watch sports......

    I normally watch a U.S stream which is pretty good as it has English commentators for the match so I don't have to hear the word soccer that often unless I listen to the build up or half time talk, which I rarely do do :xf.wink:

    In the USA my friend. I remember I used my ISP to download some movie torrents which is basically along the lines of these pirate sports streams. I ended up getting a 50 page letter siting all of my downloads. very threatening legal type stuff.
    nothing ever came out of it. but I can see how something like this can at some point and overstretch to the people accessing this website.

    I mean that letter I got? had my ip address and physical one. just so you know. be careful

    I remember back in the day I use to download from torrent sites 100's if not 1000's of films, documentaries etc and convert them onto a CD :xf.laugh: - never had a problem, then I switched to pirate movie sites, now my family force me to pay for Netflix, Prime and Disney :xf.eek:

    I'm in the U.K and I use a VPN showing I am wherever watching sports on American & Asian sports channels - let them do what they can cause I aint paying for it...... :xf.smile:

    Thanks for the concern though :xf.wink:

    interesting fact. I wish I would have thought of this.

    There is this guy who started an actual company charging a monthly feel to subscribe to his service I think it's beast tv? something like that


    anyways his idea was brilliant!

    I remember back in the day when only one rich kid on the block had cable or an atari and everyone wanted to go to that kid's house and then that kid was told by his parents to start charging 50 cents to a $1 to come play all day.

    this guy took that concept with cable but on the internet.

    it's like having 1 tv for every cable channel and having people come over and watch whichever channel is on.

    This guy did THAT but online. basically he paid to the FULL package his house then via live stream gave people access via an internet connected box with it's own remote and everything.

    and then charged like $19 for the Full package which normally would cost couple hundred. lol
