Homeland Security Official Discusses UFC's War On Piracy
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.01.2014

In an interview with MMA Junkie, James T. Hayes Jr, a special agent in charge for the US Department of Homeland Security, spoke about their efforts to fight piracy of the UFC. Their efforts focused mainly on counterfeit merchandise and illegal streams of the UFC's PPV events. The UFC calculates its own estimates for lost revenue through piracy.

Hayes said: "What I can tell you is that over the last three years since we started working with [the UFC], we've seized more than 20 websites of domains that were streaming illegally for free," he told MMAjunkie. "We've made more than 30 arrests of different counterfeit vendors and seized merchandise shirts, hats, banners, those fake championship belts worth more than a couple hundred thousand dollars. You can't stop the Internet. You can only hope to slow it down, right?"
