Premier League Continue Anti-Piracy Push with Irdeto Partnership

September 12, 2014

The Premier League has sealed a partnership with leading media protection company Irdeto as they look to continue efforts to protect their intellectual property.

Irdeto will work with the Premier League in a number of areas, shop including a specific programme to investigate the illegal supply of set-top boxes that allow commercial organisations – including pubs and bars in the UK and overseas – to receive illegal streams of Barclays Premier League matches.

The intelligence that Irdeto provides to the Premier League will enhance their abilitiy to obtain the evidence required to take legal action against suppliers of systems that allow illegal broadcasting of our matches.

“It is only through legitimate investment in our broadcasting rights that we can put on a high-quality football competition and support and invest in all levels of English football and beyond, pills ” Premier League Chief Executive, Richard Scudamore, said. “Piracy threatens that model and we are confident that our partnership with Irdeto – who have a proven track record in this area – will allow us to evolve and improve the way we guard against that threat for years to come.”

Graham Kill, CEO Irdeto, said: “The Premier League has long been at the cutting edge of anti-piracy operations, and our new relationship will strengthen this further. The aim of our work together is to ensure that legal access to the Premier League remains the best way for consumers to enjoy the finest football in the world.”
