    Some quick facts about piracy:

    FACT

    Studies show that more than 59% of those streaming illegally were UNAWARE it was illegal.

    WHY

    Because people who are distributing content illegally make it seem legal – when it’s not!

    FACT

    Downloading pirate streaming software or streaming illegal content puts you and your family at risk for malware and privacy invasion.

    WHY

    The intent of a pirate providing access to “free TV” is often to get your personal information so they can steal information such as passwords that allow access to your credit card and bank accounts and more. Many unwitting consumers have experienced malware on their computers or hacks into their personal or business networks. “Free” is not free when it comes to pirates.

    FACT

    Pirates are slick, savvy marketers, and their customers run the risk of losing money when pre-paid services disappear or illicit streaming hardware becomes useless.

    WHY

    Because what pirate websites, pirate streaming services and fully-loaded devices offer is stolen content, they are always at risk of being shut down without warning. The fight against content piracy is global, with national governments and associations of content producers and distributors working together to identify and stop it. Many large and small pirate services have already been shut down, and more will follow.

    FACT

    There is NO parental control option included with most unauthorized services or products that serve up stolen content. This means your kids could access a multitude of inappropriate programs with no means for the you to control or monitor their viewing.

    WHY

    Pirates don’t care about you or your family. Period. Buyer beware.
