The Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao Fight on May 2, 2015
Posted on June 29, 2015 by Matthew Paré
The Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquao fight on May 2, 2015, was one of the most anticipated boxing events ever, and the most widely viewed on television. The amount of revenue associated with this event in one form or another is truly staggering. It was described as the Fight of the Century. Many people who seldom if ever watch boxing or purchase a pay-per-view television program were drawn to watch this event.
The financial investment that J & J Sports Productions, Inc. made to purchase the exclusive commercial distribution rights for this TV broadcast was obviously huge, and the anti-piracy efforts involving the fight were unprecedented in scope. There were literally thousands of private investigators throughout the entire country highly incentivized to catch every commercial establishment that showed the event without paying the proper license fee to J & J Sports Productions, Inc. The investigators are paid for every place that they catch and may find themselves in even the most remote and small places of business far off the beaten path, or in large establishments in big cities alike. No place is safe or outside of their investigative efforts.
Because of the huge amount of revenue to purchase the exclusive rights to this particular program, and the fact that even the cheapest commercial license to show this event was $3,500.00 the demands that will be made to settle and resolve these particular TV piracy claims will be very large.
If you receive a demand letter accusing you of the unauthorized exhibition of the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao event on May 2, 2015, you are in a very bad situation.
