Dana White isn’t the only one who hates illegal streamers.
As you very well know, if you’re one of those people who just refuse to shell out cash for a pay-per-view event, there are dozens, if not hundreds of places on the Internet to watch those things for free.
Well, Triller doesn’t like that, so now they plan on taking money out of the pocket of those who took cash out of their pockets.
Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports is reporting that Triller has filed lawsuits against 11 websites and 100 unnamed persons in the complaint filed alleging that these entities and sites had over 2 million streams at a loss of 100 million dollars for airing illegally their broadcast of the pay-per-view of Jake Paul taking on Ben Askren.
There has been no official number released, but rumors are out there that Triller had 1.3 to 1.5 million PPV buys.
Among the names listed were “Itslilbrandon,” “Mike,” and Crackstreamslive.com.
Triller is clearly trying to send a message like Dana White has been desperately trying to do, however, these sites usually just disappear and then reappear under a new name.
UFC President Dana White has threatened to “Go to war” against illegal streamers back in February, but he likely knows there is no way he will ever win.
It’s a losing battle.
