TV Sports Execs Testify in D.C. About Piracy

Dec 16, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The piracy of live sports broadcasts was the subject of a House Judiciary Committee hearing in Washington today, reports B&C.

ESPN executives appeared to present their side in the issue, as did representatives from Major League Baseball and the Ultimate Fighting Championship, whose chairman, Lorenzo Fertitta, contended that the unlawful use of the broadcasts "kills jobs" and "threatens the expansion of U.S.-based companies."
