Another DoJ Enforcement Action - Superbowl Streaming Targeted


Copyright prosecution led by Bharara

In the eve of championship final in the USA, the country's Department of Justice decided to deal with sports live streaming websites, taking down 16 of them on the basis of copyright laws.

Once again, Preet Bharara, the man behind the Black Friday, is reportedly leading the prosecution in the action, in which 28-year-old Michigan operator Yonjo Quiroa alias Ronaldo Solano stands charged with a copyright offence in respect of several of the shutdown sites over the period February 2010 to January 2012. He will stand before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on a trial, whose date is yet to be specified.

According to Baharara, "These websites and their operators deprive sports leagues and networks of legitimate revenue in what amounts to virtual thievery."

It has been reported that the websites include firstrow.tv, firstrowsports.com, firstrowsports.net, firstrowsports.tv, hq-streams.tv, robplay.tv, soccertvlive.net, sports95.com, sports95.net, sports95.org, sportswwe.net, sportswwe.tv, sportswwe.com, xonesports.tv, youwwe.com and youwwe.net.
