The Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU) has arrested 55-year-old “Sir Paul,” a man who is being referred to as “the world’s most prolific uploader” of UFC content.
“Sir Paul” was reportedly arrested at his home in Leicestershire, England, on Wednesday morning.
Below are some specific details, courtesy of TorrentFreak.com
“PIPCU are throwing some big numbers around. The unit claims that the individual is responsible for uploading more than 3.2 terabytes of data, which is the equivalent of more than 3,000 videos.
Of course, that’s just his uploading. When it comes to total videos distributed things get much, much worse. PIPCU estimates that the files uploaded generated in excess of two million downloads at a cost to the industry of several million pounds.”
“We take online piracy very seriously,” said UFC Chief Legal Officer Kirk Hendrick. “And will continue to work with law enforcement officials around the world to prevent illegal sharing of UFC content.”
