    well what if you started the stream 2 minutes after the warning came on? haha

    They have already proven that they can sue you and win if you stream. End of story.

    Have they won against someone who streamed?

    Honestly, think about it. Everything points to the internet becoming heavily regulated very soon.

    Too much money is being lost for too long. No way that is allowed to go on forever.

    We are living in the wild wild west of the digital age.
    All it takes is one super duper program (*google?) To be able to see EVERYTHING on your computer... whether its switched on or not.

    Piracy will always be present but never on such a global massive scale as today.

    Heavily regulated? By whom exactly? Do you have any idea of what it would take to regulate the internet?

    Businesses adapt. They have in the past, and will continue to find ways to adapt, or they die. The internet has been around for about 3 decades now, and economies are still flourishing. It's just part of reality.

    A couple things:

    Generally, the illicit nature of counterfeiting and piracy makes estimating the economic impact of IP infringements extremely difficult, so assumptions must be used to offset the lack of data. Efforts to estimate losses involve assumptions such as the rate at which consumers would substitute counterfeit for legitimate products, which can have enormous impacts on the resulting estimates. Because of the significant differences in types of counterfeited and pirated goods and industries involved, no single method can be used to develop estimates.
    Essentially, the numbers used to represent the economic harm of piracy are made up.

    Even if they curtail the piracy in the USA and Western Europe, that doesn't even put a small dent in it globally.

    I guess it would take some sort of world super power or global world dominating government... lucky we don't have anything like that.. oh wait.

    I'm not going to argue my point, just remember who said what in ten years.

    The chances of you getting nailed for streaming have to be very slim, I typically only stream the free ones, as I don't have cable anywhere and don't know how to get those on my computer. But honestly at this point I don't bother to watch many events, either lack of money or time... I just read the play by plays and watch the gifs of the finishes. Id probably watch more of them if they weren't sixty bucks, and coming so frequently,

    Have they? I haven't heard of such a case, and that applies to any company that produces content.
