    According to a report on the BBC website today , pirate streams of football matches may pose a risk to users personal privacy and equipment.

    "More than 60% of analyzed streams originate from the media servers provided by only five companies located in Belize, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Canada.

    "Additionally, we found that more than 64% of parties providing these streams have been reported at least once for violating the copyrights of content owners."

    Yeah , I see what you mean .... sorry , my mistake !

    It was a quick cut-and-paste from the BBC website .

    But having said that , there is a certainly some inherent danger in the "corporate copyright " area .... I'm thinking back to heavy Napster users.

    There were some lawyers of the " Junkyard Dog " variety actively tracking them down .
