Ustream has given the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) the IP addresses of users broadcasting the mixed martial arts league’s pay-per-view events through the live streaming site, it confirmed in an email. The news comes a week after UFC parent company Zuffa LLC subpoenaed both Ustream and Justin.tv to reveal the identities of users infringing on its rights through unauthorized live streams. Ustream told us today that it responded to these demands as soon as it was contacted by Zuffa. Ustream’s statement reads, in part: “Ustream was subpoenaed by UFC via Zuffa earlier this year to provide identifiable information on certain broadcasters, which Ustream fully complied with in a timely manner. Ustream continues to work cohesively with our premium content partners to prevent piracy, including UFC to legally stream officially-sanctioned UFC events.” Ustream also said that it recently updated its copyright protection tools to expedite takedowns.
