The Federal Government hasn't learned a thing about technology. When one site gets shut down, 10 more show up. Last time they did this was to a popular streaming site called NinjaVideo.net and what happened? Over 20 streaming sites popped up within a matter of months.

Goodbye ATDHE.net and welcome the birth of ATDHE.ME. Checking to setup a checkmate.

Beaucoup thanks for the correction..

Disagree its all NFL. Those sites do music, other sports and film (movies/TV)-if that's what you were saying.

Agree with movies and music - though that theft continues unabated in spite of efforts.  Other than a pay per view boxing match - who else blocks sporting events - can't think of one.  Everyone else wants fans of a sport/team to see the sport/team - but not the NFL.

Looks like the Feds got a 2 for 1 from shutting down ATDHE. http://atdhenet.tv and http://atdhe.me are up and online.

One thing the NFL may very well do next year though is begin to sue businesses that tap into the pirated feeds.

Legally the game is the property of the NFL. And they have the right to dictate who can and cannot see their product. If they take a bar or restaurant to court for copyright infringement, the league would likely win.

They already do that, have been for years.  Its the homeowner where they have no leverage.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"
