The UK Premier League has won High Court injunctions against three websites accused of illegally streaming its live football matches over the net. The sites had been re-distributing signals from rightsholders like Sky Sports. It's been a growing problem for the league over the last few years as the global audience grows for the English game.
FreePremierLeague.com had charged £7, (E9.4) for example. Now both it and FootballOn.net have disappeared, the League says the precedent will be used to pursue other site in the UK and abroad.
