There are no equivalent laws protecting this type of rights. Let’s remember that piracy is a problem for us Pay TV But it’s a problem – and not everyone understands it – even for football teams. Hacking reduces the value of a product, if you start not paying to see something, the value of that product is much less not today but in the next few years. In people’s perception, it is worth much less.
