Being able to watch live streaming sports online took a hit this year thanks to the US’s ICE government agency. This agency has seized and shut down some of the top sports streaming sites online. Those websites are now hosted on ICE’s servers and display a landing page letting visitors know that the domain was seized by ICE. What cyberspace is buzzing about is the apparent lack of due process because the website owners did not receive any notification nor did they have the opportunity to defend themselves in court prior to their website and domain name being confiscated. This has also led to one incident in which ICE seized a public blogging website and shut down around 80,000 blogs as a result of only one of the blogs having illegal content on it.
What adds a level of complexity to the case is that ICE confiscated Rojadirecta which was a sports streaming site owned and operated out of Spain. This site went to Spanish court twice and was found legal in Spain. But the US still confiscated the site and domain because it resided on a .org domain and the .org listing company is based in the United States. This could potentially have a snowball effect as the US in effect is attempting to regulate citizens of other countries. I have not heard or read anything from the Spanish court system about this domain seizure but I would be interested to read what they think about it and what possible future ripple effect this could lead to.
The way that the law is supposed to work is that you are accused of something and have the right to defend yourself. It is called due process and it is a legal right in the US. I am not a lawyer, but in my amateur opinion I fail to see ICE’s justification for taking domain names without even serving notice to the domain owner and without the domain owner having the opportunity to defend themselves.
Streaming live sports on your website is obvious trademark infringement, I think we can all agree on that, but some of the sites were not broadcasting anything… they were either linking to a broadcast that was located on another website or they were embedding through an iframe code the broadcast (this means that the broadcast opened up in a webpage from their site, but the actual sports streaming was occuring on another site’s servers). Whether or not ICE understands the different technical aspects I am not sure, but if sharing information (i.e. through linking) is illegal, does that mean that we do not have the freedom to share information which is illegal? I guess this is for the legal beagals to decide, but it seems like a battle between freedom of speech and sharing what is deemed illegal information. (though sharing where you can watching live streaming sports is hardly a national secret)

The Premier League is a professional football club league that plays in Europe. There are twenty teams that play matches which go from the period of time of August until May. The whole league will play three hundred and eighty matches during a year with each team playing thirty eight matches. The games are usually held on the weekends though there are a few matches that run during the week. Many people who enjoy watching the league use P2P4U net as the method to catch the matches.
The twenty clubs in the League are Arsenal, Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Blackburn Rovers, Blackpool, Bolton Wanderers, Chelsea, Everton, Fulham, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Sunderland, Stoke City, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United, West Bromich Albion, Wigan Athletic, and the Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Premier League originally started with 12 teams but has since expanded to the current 20 team structure. There are many fans of these football clubs and the attendance of a match on the pitch averages around 36,000 fans in attendance. Manchester United’s coach, Sir Alex Ferguson, has been with the team since November 1986 and is the longest tenured coach in the premier league.
The league allows transfers and there have been some famous players who have come over into the league with very high transfer fees. Some of these players are Robinho, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Andy Carroll, Andriy Shevchenko, Fernando Torres, and Cristiano Ronaldo. The transfer fees can cost much more then the player’s salary as the Ronaldo transfer fee was 80 million.
The top five goalscorers all time in the league are Alan Shearer, Andrew Cole, Thierry Henry, Robbie Fowler, and Les Ferdinand. Shearer had 260 goals to lead everyone all time in the Premier League. Shearer also won the award for being the best overall player of the decade which is a pretigious award.
People who cannot go to the matches live can either attempt to watch the matches on their tube or they can check out P2P4U net as an alternative way to try to catch their favorite teams. Ticket prices can be expensive so a lot of fans cannot afford to attend all 38 matches in a season. Sometimes the TV does not carry all the games or you need a special package to watch them all which can also be expensive so P2P4U net is a free alternative to this.
