    Super Bowl super bust: US seizes 307 websites; grabs $4.8M in fake NFL merchandise



    The piracy, counterfeit and copyright battle has moved to the Super Bowl.

    Speaking a National Football League press conference ahead of this weekend's Super Bowl the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said special agents this week seized a total of 307 websites and snatched up 42,692 items of phony Super Bowl-related memorabilia along with other counterfeit items for a total take of more than $4.8 million - up from $3.72 million last year.

    Only 16 were streaming content without a license,291 of them were selling counterfeit merchandise. The NFL is going to be having the Superbowl live on their website this year.

    Superbowl will be streamed live online for free in HD on nbc.com and nfl.com

    Court order seizures have been going on since the nation started,just because something is a website,doesn't mean its exempt from them.

    Why would anyone do a Super Bowl streaming site? It's going to be broadcast on National TV.

    Maybe in some countries it won't but IDK...
