UFC to go after online piracy of PPV in a surprising manner
In what will prove to be a much talked about issue in what is likely to be a never-ending battle between promoters of PPV events and those who stream them illegally, Zuffa LLC is going after the consumers as well as the distributors. Despite warnings on the shows, nobody has ever gone after individual consumers. As part of legal action against the web site GreenFeedz, which streamed UFC 130 to UFC 142 illegally and was threatened with legal action, Zuffa was able to obtain e-mail addresses, usernames and each individual event streamed, as well as IP addresses of everyone who watched an event through that web site. They will be legally going after the individual consumers for copyright violations.
