    and rightfully so. The goal is to make a profit and when people watch by illegal means that takes away from said profit. However if the pay per view prices weren’t so high then maybe more people would buy the show. Most can’t afford 55 bucks 20 times a year to buy all the ppvs but it’s really still not a reason to steel but that wont stop most myself included.

  3. Beast says:

    @Tad You’re right. People usually pay $55 for the main event that could last 20 seconds or less. Not worth it. I think $30 would be a little bit fair.

  4. AJ Starr says:

    If the bar owner has a TV in the bar… set up on cable or satellite… and orders the PPV, he can have 500 people cram into his bar or house to watch it. It’s HIS account in which he bought the PPV on.

    If it was illegal, then cable and satellite companies would be REQUIRED to put PPV blocks on places of business which have TVs.

    That case will be thrown out, or won’t even reach court. NOTHING illegal about it. You can’t sue someone because people watched your broadcast on a TV that was LEGALLY set up to show it. There is no law against ordering a PPV on a bar TV, so they’re gonna have real fun in court.

    PLUS, they have to PROVE every one of those people would have ordered the PPV if they weren’t in the bar. You either show a concrete paper trail… or you have no case. Since nothing like that will exist, the UFC is going to embarrass itself on this one. Absolutely pathetic!

  5. JD Storm says:

    if Dana White succeeds, then this could mean that everyone here could probably be sued for similar practices. have a friend over for a Wrestlemania viewing party & WWE would sue you for having that friend over.

  6. AJ Starr says:

    It stands no chance, because there is no law in place stopping it from happening. The only ways that the UFC can even provide a case are as follows;

    Provide written statements from every person who was in that bar that night, that they were going to order it from home. Also, that the way the bar owner played the PPV, was illegal, such as a live stream online.

    If this, and the online censoring bill passes, I will take my dual citizenship on over to Canada, because this country is becoming unbearable to live in.

    Germany isn’t the UK.

    and also, there are about 5 similarities between Vince and Dana I can think of right off the top of my head.
