Soccer-Italy's Serie A seals deal with Google against online piracy apps

Mon 17th May, 2021 12:20pm
MILAN, May 17 (Reuters) - Serie A said on Monday Google
 GOOGL.O  agreed to remove from its content platform some video
apps illegally enabling users to watch live games as a part of a
deal between Italy's top flight soccer league and the web giant
to curb online piracy.
    Serie A stepped up efforts to curb online piracy in recent
years to protect the value of its TV rights, which made most of
the revenue of Italian soccer clubs.
    "Google has removed from its Play Store apps illegally
reproducing contents owned by Serie A," the league said in a
statement. 
    Under a new agreement, Google will use "innovative
instruments" to detect any future copyright infringement, the
league said, without elaborating further.
    Last week Italian police blocked 1.5 million users that were
illegally streaming content from providers including Netflix Inc
 NFLX.O , Comcast's  CMCSA.O  Sky unit, DAZN and domestic
broadcaster Mediaset  MS.MI .  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL8N2N11W4
