MotoGP organiser Dorna has teamed up with the Spanish football league LaLiga to utilise its anti-piracy tools in order to stage a fight-back against illegal streaming of its championships.
Dorna-who also run the World Superbike Championship-will receive help from LaLiga’s Technological Content Protection service to tackle illegal audio and video content from the two championships across mobile app, social media and all other digital platforms.
Included as part of LaLiga’s TCP service will be the monitoring and potential shutdown of fake profiles that use Dorna’s logo and likeness, while its human, technical and legal resources will comb through search engines to eliminate any illegal websites and pages.
Furthermore legal evidence that could potentially be used in court against unauthorised Cardsharing and IPTV related activity also arrives as part of the service with its Lumiere platform.
Manel Arroyo, Managaing Director of Dorna Sports, reckons both MotoGP and WSBK will benefit greatly from LaLiga’s anti-piracy measures.
“The signing of this agreement between LaLiga and Dorna Sports shows our complete commitment to the fight against piracy.
“The protection of audio-visual rights is and always has been a of utmost importance for us because, due to the exclusive and attractive nature of the content we produce, it suffers much more from the consequences of piracy.
“Both MotoGP and WorldSBK will greatly benefit from the tools created by LaLiga’s technological protection team, which is a global point of reference and therefore a guarantee of security for our Championships.”
