Pre-Piracy Warning Now a Thing, Sony Sends 'Euro 2016' Pre-Warning to Torrent Sites
There's a new thing in the world of piracy warnings, as Sony Pictures Networks takes piracy prevention to the next, or previous, level.
Trying to get ahead of the massive piracy onslaught for Euro 2016, Sony Pictures Networks has already started sending piracy warnings to torrent sites. To be more accurate, these are pre-piracy notices, warning these torrent sites against putting up torrents of full match videos and highlights for Europe's premier International soccer competition.
The warning letters, which were also sent to streaming sites, warn of dire legal consequences for sites that put up such content.
"Any manner of communicating and/or making available for viewing the UEFA EURO CUP 2016 matches on any platform shall therefore amount to violation of our Client’s exclusive rights in which our client has invested significant amount of money," the letter states.
Speaking to some of the operators of these sites, TorrentFreak learned that most have no intention of following Sony's demand. In fact, some have taken the notice as a confirmation of the popularity of Euro 2016 content and have been encouraged to do more to serve such content during June and July, when the competition takes place throughout France.
