It's like trying to stop drug dealing.

Except the Superbowl is on Fox and it is an OTA signal so anyone with a tv can watch the game for free in the US

The only way the Government will be able to stop piracy is if they pull a China and start blocking access to sites and even China's system can be bypassed. So really the only way the government can stop piracy is if they block all international signals and make all websites go threw government owned servers

Banks? Check
Automakers? Check
Healthcare? Check

Don't you worry. Obama will figure out a way.

Message boards soon lit up with the news that the site had returned at a different Web address.

"When one goes down, four more will go up," noted one person on Hfboards.com, a hockey fan site, hinting at the whack-a-mole situation the government faces. "No big deal."
oh ****... we're famous dudes!! I'm gonna have to get a stylist,.. agent...
man.. so much to do..


The siezure kinda took me back too, till I realized that the SUPERBOWL is this weekend!

Good to see that corporate america (nfl) is able to get the government to be available to their whims... it'd be nice if I'd get some of that help when another robber comes by our area

I already watch all my tv online, so do a lot of people and it won't stop.

Exactly. It's a huge problem that the NHL seems to have no problem ignoring. I get Caps games but I want Pens games...but I can't get Pens games because I live in PA.

So here I am with my money trying to give it in exchange to watch my favorite team when at school and the NHL is telling me they don't want my money. What kind of business turns away money? It's not like I am going to start watching the Caps because I can't get the Pens.

If you are getting Center Ice the NHL assumes you are getting the in-market games by default through a cable provider, so there really is no need for redundancy.

Same with Gamecenter, I see people get all mad about their local team not being on Gamecenter, it can't be on Gamecenter or else no one would watch the local TV feed.
But you are not. There are three different teams covered in PA alone through local providers. There has to be places around NY that have several teams blacked out by center ice so you are stuck with what ever. How hard would it be to check what cable provider you get instead of what state you live in?

If I can't stream an out-of-market hockey game, then the terrorists have won!

I don't see why piracy is considered piracy in the first place if the initial source was paid for and the streamer is not getting any money from the viewers.

Then it is absolutely no different than someone coming over to your house to watch the game, or burning a cd or dvd for a friend.

There isn't?

There's a physical limitation to the number of people you can fit into your house and watch the game, or the amount of dvd's a reasonable person would burn (which is also illegal).

The fact is, it's theft. It's a rebroadcast of copyrighted content without permission. The internet has just made it anonymous and very simple to do. But it's still theft.

I get that a lot of people do it and have no problem with it. But it's hilarious that the people who are stealing are often the most self righteous about it.

Thank you for your response that began with actual information that makes sense, but seemed to degrade into a condescending tone toward the end.

I really think product placement has to change. Standard commericals are a gross money sink, and now with the advent of DVR/PVR's, people are just skipping through them. If they really want to sell their products, they need to do it subtly by incorporating it INTO the television program itself. It's been done, but needs to be done more frequently.

That way, everyone can just pay to watch television and the corporations don't risk losing $'s to people who skip their ads.

That's what they said when the VCR was invented.

I wonder if there are any studies that bring up the conversion rate of ad viewership --> direct sales, and if so, has it seen a decline since the 90's and the advent of the VCR.
