    Charge less if you want fewer people to stream. No one is going to pay those prices.

    In other words, Dana had to settle for 6 Ferraris instead of 8.

    According to UFC’s Riche McKnight, although they have agreed on specific takedown arrangements with several social media companies that host the links that pop up during a fighting match, the online platforms seem to be neglectful to the requests and so the links aren’t removed immediately. This causes considerable damage to the rightsholders, as even minutes of online existence for these links translate to many thousands of illegal viewers. McKnight proposes a change in the law that would push social media giants like Facebook to remove these links proactively, without even requiring notice from the UFC. As McKnight told the senators: “Private, voluntary partnerships [with online platforms] are not sufficient to combat online piracy. Addressing this problem requires a new approach that includes a strong legal framework, a combination of private and public enforcement, and enhanced cooperation with our international partners.”

    The criminalization of streaming remains the primary goal of UFC’s lobbying, as this will change the field decisively. Until then though, a transition from reactive to proactive takedowns would allow for much-needed breathing space for the legitimate broadcasters, who are now with their backs on the wall. The US Congress will now have to consider what new legal framework would facilitate UFC’s requirements, and one that would include upload filters is, unfortunately, a real possibility at this point.

    Give out stuff for free if you don't want people stealing.

    It's not my fault I couldn't afford to pay for my car. I had to steal it.

    Could consider paying if the ppvs weren't so goddamn awful and if the fighters actually got paid properly.

    What kind of an incentive are we talking about here? I looked over the article but they never actually stated what it would be. What could congress/UFC possibly give Facebook and other social media giants that would entice them to proactively block pirates.

    They have to make it a price that people would rather pay then stream.

    See netflix for example.... It works because its cheap enough anyone can buy and offers a service that makes things easier and smoother to a point you would rather pay than go through the hassles of pirating

    Maybe yes to first part but lol no to 2nd part.

    You guys with your righteousness are hilarious.

    You stream, so you're stealing from those fighters you so badly want to help.
