    The social media company on Monday issued a press release announcing a website has been opened where individuals who illegally streamed the pay-per-view can pay the $49.99 price tag for the event. In exchange, those individuals’ names will be removed from lawsuit, which seeks a $150,000 penalty from every person who pirated the card.

    “VPN firewalls all have to comply and turn over the actual IP addresses of each person who stole the fight in discovery,” Matt St. Claire, Head of Piracy for Triller, said in a statement. “We will be able to identify each and every person, VPN or not, as each stream has a unique fingerprint embedded in the content.

    “Triller will pursue the full $150,000 penalty per person per instance for anyone who doesn’t do the right thing and pay before the deadline.”

    “We are taking this position because it is outright theft,” St. Claire said. “It is no different than walking into a store and stealing a video game off the shelf. In the case of the offending sites, it’s worse, because they also then resold it to many people, illegally profiting from work they do not own.
    “We encourage anyone who pirated the event to visit the site before June 1, pay their $49.99 and receive a full and complete release from Triller to avoid further action,”


    The website started by Triller will stay open until June 1 to allow anyone seeking to pay the $49.99 in order to remove themselves from the pending litigation. The initial lawsuit filed was seeking $100 million in damages.

    They should all go to jail, not for streaming but just for watching that horrible trainwreck of a pretend boxing concert

    Literally what I was thinking. It seems really suspect that they’re going to these measures just to scrounge up a few extra bucks.

    eh, this promotion won't be here next year. I fucking hope not. It's a travesty anyway. I like ass n titties, but they made a mockery of the sport with all that shit being a circus. Good riddance lol.

    The most they could do against viewers of a stream is bring a civil suit, which will never be paid by anyone.

    These guys seem just as dumb and clueless as Goof White on the whole internet/copyright issue.

    Sounds like Dana was right, 1.5 million is a fabricated number most likely.

    Scare tactics. They wouldn't be doing this if they had any actual grounds to do what they are implying. It's a bluff and watching a stream isn't technically illegal, you have no control of what is shown on the stream. So that fault goes to the streamer and not the viewer. Not all VPNs are the same. Most don't keep records or comply with request. Either way this is just a bluff and scare tactic that may work on some people. That is the point of it though.
