Triller launches $100m piracy lawsuit
April 27, 2021
Triller Fight Club has filed a lawsuit in US District Court of Central California naming many streaming sites with regard to widespread piracy that impacted their April 17th Triller Fight Club Pay Per View event that was held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
The lawsuit seeks $100 million in damages from the groups named.
Ryan Kavanaugh, co-controlling shareholder at Triller, claimed: “It’s shocking to think a theft so grand can be done so blatantly and brazenly and with no remorse. There is zero difference between what they did and walking into a market stealing tons of a product and selling it at a discount in the parking lot. It’s neither civilly nor criminally any different, and we are prosecuting to the fullest extent of the law. There were more than two million illegal streams, akin to hundreds of millions of dollars.”
“People put a lot of hard work, time and money into creating a product for the consumer, and having it stolen and resold is terribly damaging. The good news is they are not protected by VPN masking or other firewalls as their activities are criminal and grand theft, so we will ultimately find them and prevail not just for us but for content creators in general,” added Kavanaugh.
