Triller offers clemency to boxing pirates

May 4, 2021

Streaming platform Triller said it will will not pursue legal action against boxing fans who pirated the platform’s April 17th fight between Jake Paul and Ben Askren provided they pay the original $49.99 price before June 1st.

Over 2 million illegal streams of the Triller Fight Club bout occurred, the company said, and it will be pursuing those individuals for the maximum penalty of $150,000 per illegal stream of the fight.

“VPNs all have to comply and turn over the actual IP addresses of each person who stole the fight in discovery,” Triller’s head of piracy Matt St. Claire said. “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 has set up a website for those who want to pay the amount before the deadline.

Triller has already filed legal action in the US District Court of Central California against the owners of a number of websites that restreamed the event.
