Pirated live streams of FIFA 2014 are being watched by millions of users

FIFA World Cup

Παρ’ όλες τις προσπάθειες της FIFA, Internet users continue to watch World Cup matches with the help of pirated live streams.

In fact, millions of people have already chosen to use pirated streams, as some games have watched more than half a million viewers, according to a report TorrentFreak.

According to the report, Viaccess-Orca, a French-Israeli content protection company that handles web site announcements, has made about 2.000 requests for closing pages hosting or simply linking games to streams.

FIFA had warned before starting the Cup, but even at the start of it, saying that if someone illegally relayed the games they would stop him immediately at any time of the day, as the streams leave stigmas. Even so, however, there are many choices out there for those who really want to find a game.

“Το ποσοστό επιτυχίας κυμαίνεται ανά πλατφόρμα περιεχομένου, αλλά γενικά, έχουμε καταφέρει να κατεβάσουμε το 35% των streaming συνδέσμων πριν τελειώσει το παιχνίδι. Νομίζω ότι αυτό είναι ένα μεγάλο ποσοστό επιτυχίας, ιδίως σε σύγκριση με τις ιστοσελίδες που έχουν direct donwload” δήλωσε ο David Leporini, αντιπρόεδρος του μάρκετινγκ της Viaccess-Orca.

Ενώ ο αριθμός είναι πράγματι αξιοπρεπής, είναι ακόμα πολύ μακριά από το 100% που θα ήθελε η FIFA. Ωστόσο, η όλη διαδικασία περιπλέκεται από το γεγονός ότι πολλές ιστοσελίδες δεν δημοσιεύουν τις συνδέσεις με τα streams μέχρι λίγο πριν την έναρξη του παιχνιδιού. Και μέχρι να ανιχνευτούν οι συνδέσεις αυτές από την στιγμή που το παιχνίδι αρχίζει, αναγνωριστεί το περιεχόμενο τους  ως παράνομο και κινηθεί η διαδικασία για να γίνει ότι προβλέπεται , το παιχνίδι μπορεί να έχει ήδη τελειώσει.

“Για τις πρώτες δέκα μέρες έχουμε στείλει περίπου 150 ανακοινώσεις takedown σε σελίδες του Facebook και του Twitter. Ανάμεσα σε όλες τις πλατφόρμες περιεχομένου που κοινοποιήθηκε, μετρήσαμε ένα ποσοστό επιτυχίας περίπου 51% για την απομάκρυνση των συνδέσμων από τις σελίδες του Facebook” είπε ο Leporini  στο TorrentFreak.
