    Default Streaming knockout

    A British boxing fan was hit with a $115,000 bill after a friend of his streamed the April 2017 Anthony Joshua/Wladimir Klitschko fight on Facebook Live.

    Craig Foster paid the £19.95 ($26.99) to watch the fight on Sky Box Office, allowing him to watch the April fight on pay-per-view at his home with his friends. But one of Foster's friends, who reportedly had too much to drink, started streaming the fight on Foster's iPad to Facebook Live.

    Sky found Foster from the watermark on his account number, which showed up on the screen, according to The Mirror, which first reported the news.

    Not sure what to make of this. The "bill" seems excessive. However, it's an obvious copyright infringement.

    Good grief.

    What terrible PR they will get from this. Just have an atty send him a warning and ask that he share some kind of "privacy isn't victimless" video on his facebook page with an apology to Sky or whomever.

    I get they need to protect IP rights and this will go in that direction, but it makes them look weak and vengeful.
    The sharp edge of a razor is difficult to pass over; thus the wise say the path to Salvation is hard.

    I read ISPs in Europe were helping identify purple that streamed Game of Thrones finale and they would be suing (or somehow going after) individual streamers vs. the sites where it was hosted.
