TMG latest anti-piracy partner for beIN


Sports broadcaster beIN has partnered with anti-piracy group TMG to work on its online enforcement strategy.

The partnership will include new measures, including live content removal, pirate link takedown and legal action to close non-compliant websites.

Mohammed Al Subaie, executive director of commercial affairs at beIN, said: “We have appointed TMG to monitor beIN streaming piracy on a global scale.”

“We are confident that TMG’s cutting-edge technologies and infrastructure will enable a strong protection of contents and ultimately, of our rights.”

As part of the partnership, TMG and beIN will engage in content detection, monitoring, source identification, intelligence gathering, investigations and enforcement.

TMG’s chief technology officer, Bastien Casalta, added: “Social networks and user-generated content websites have become straightforward places for fans to share content they don’t actually own the rights for.”

“And aside from those, new pirate sites are launched on a regular basis, providing millions of users with illegal access to live sports, especially in Europe, North Africa, the Middle-East and Asia.”

BeIN partnered with anti-piracy system provider Friend MTS last week (3 April).

The sports broadcaster will use both TMG and Friend MTS to ramp up its anti-piracy efforts.
