A few weeks back, Premier League lawyers were pushing the UK government a little harder to punish ISPs for allowing customers to view illegal streams of matches. Well, it now seems that popular streaming site myp2p.eu is no longer showing premier league matches.
Myp2p has shot up in popularity in the last year or so, boasting an alexa traffic rank of 1,279 when I checked today. However, it seems there are pending legal proceedings, meaning there’ll be no more linking to premier leage or Italian Serie A streams. If anyone has more details on these legal proceedings, I’d love to hear more..
One thing is for sure. Other sites will pop up and take over for a while; I’ll bet Iraq Goals for one is seeing a little more traffic in recent weeks. When the glorious TV Links was shut down in 2007 (or was it 2006?) it seemed like the end of the world…(in that I was still halfway through season five of Curb Your Enthusiasm). But soon enough, other sites took its place.
Well myp2p.eu, it was nice knowing you. Thanks for the goals.
