BeoutQ: an unprecedented piracy story
For just over two years, beoutQ has been operating the single most extensive, most comprehensive and audacious pirate broadcast operation in the history of modern media.
This report is an analysis of the unprecedented beoutQ piracy, and a case study on the unprecedented tri-pronged action taken to combat it to date – action split along technological, legal, and political lines. Multiple senior stakeholders – from rights holders, broadcasters, government entities, and legal and technical service providers – have been interviewed but many on the condition of anonymity, a measure of the sensitivity and nervousness around this case.
