Report: UFC Beginning To Target Consumers In Online Piracy War

If you happened to watch illegal streams of UFC 130 or UFC 142 on a site called GreenFeedz.com, you may want to start looking for an attorney because according to a report from The Wrestling Observer, the UFC has obtained the IP addresses of the individuals who watched those streams and is planning to take legal action against them.

As part of legal action against the web site GreenFeedz, which streamed UFC 130 to UFC 142 illegally and was threatened with legal action, Zuffa was able to obtain e-mail addresses, usernames and each individual event streamed, as well as IP addresses of everyone who watched an event through that web site.

They will be legally going after the individual consumers for copyright violations.

The UFC warned that they would go after individual consumers who watched pirated streams of their events, but up until this point they’ve only targeted website and bar owners. I honestly didn’t think they would make good on those threats, but apparently I was wrong.

All I know is I’d hate to be ones who watched the stream. Those individuals are going to wind up paying a whole heck of a lot more than $50 for those pay-per-views once the UFC gets done with them.
