Wired is reporting that Feds have seized 307 sports related domain names just days before the Super Bowl. Of these, 291 domains were used to sell fake or non-licensed apparel and the remaining domains were being used to stream unauthorized live sporting events.
The seizures came from the Homeland Security’s ICE unit.
When I first heard the news I immediately visited FirstRowSports.com. First Row Sports is a site that I may or may not have used to watch football and hockey games in the past. (I do have 3 TV’s in my living room for football but what can I say sometimes there’s 4 games I want to watch at once). Sure enough, the domain has been seized and the now commonly known ‘ICE’ page showed up.
At the time of posting, FirstRowSports.eu is still up and running.
