|Duco Events, a large boxing promotion company, is trying to track down an individual streaming their events for free. They posted a “wanted” poster on Facebook featuring an alleged pirate and offered a cash reward and anonymity for anyone who provides his home address.
Content production companies are usually able to use technical means to identify copyright infringers, if they have IP address or financial information. However, Duco Events decided to resort to chasing pirates in the physical realm. The company is recognized by the World Boxing Organization as the leading promoter in the Asia Pacific region and often has its content pirated. It is particularly tired of a New Zealander James Bryant. For example, he informed NZ Herald in early 2016 that he intended to stream a July boxing event. Duco sent a private investigator to his parents’ Auckland house to serve court papers, but Bryant wasn’t there.
The streamer is known as a web developer and SEO specialist. He revealed that one day someone emailed him looking for a computer repair, but it seemed suspicious to him, and James gave a friend’s address. As a result, an investigator was sitting outside there all day and eventually asked for Bryant by name.
So far, the company still hasn’t managed to locate him. As for Bryant, he promised to make it his personal mission to stream every event if they find him. Duco took it quite seriously and sought assistance in finding the elusive Bryant online by posting an offer for his friends on Facebook. In response, the self-confessed streamer has started a fund-raiser to fight Duco and to set up a new streaming service.
