so it seems like theyre limiting the # of PPV buyers .... in hopes it wont get bootlegged as bad

capping ppv sales is idiotic. if you want to discourage bootlegging, add something to the ppv to increase the value in the purchase.

Not sure what could be added that would suddenly discourage bootlegging

an awesome incentive for PPV purchases would be access to vaulted battles. if NOME7 was only an average card, i may be more inclined to dish out the money if it meant i am also able to watch con vs yung ill.

edit: people could still bootleg that. lol never mind.

It's pretty clear that Beasley has no clue what he's talking about when it comes to actual technology. He's like that dude on facebook that you get into it with and then he starts talking about how he's got your IP address and knows where you live. Pure nonsense.

They could have someone develop some type of script that will grab some information that pertains to the buyer of the stream (even if it's just the purchase #). That information will appear in a dynamic "watermark" pretty often during the video (could def be done through FFMPEG or something else that does realtime transcoding to streams). This way if the footage is bootlegged and bootlegger isn't smart enough to figure out how to get rid of that watermark or hide it before sharing it these guys would basically be able to track back to the person was who was bootlegging their footage.

That would seem like a viable solution, unless the stream was purchased illegally (that opens a whole other can of worms, though no one is likely to get into too much trouble for it unless url starts charging $250 or more for stream access). Either way, actually being held accountable for bootlegging would probably discourage people from bootlegging.

The one time they did a ppv (was it just once?) it was pretty on point if I recall correctly. I'd be interested in buying.

FYI $35 for the PPV: http://www.watchbattlelive.com/

I am copping BO7 but I might have plans already during NOME 7. They say it's "limited" for stream viewers/purchasers but I'm not sure what that number is.

I wonder how many people actually believe they'll be limiting the number of streams they allow to be purchased They said that so people would immediately buy it. Smart tactic. But anyone with common sense knows they'll still be able to purchase it a week from now lol.

Hmm, If I remember correctly they've only done this twice before, at NOME 5 and SM5. With Nome people bootlegged the fuck out of it and it clearly impacted the views. With SM5 they chose to release all the battles within a week to prevent bootlegging.

I wonder what they'll do this time. I'm probably purchasing anyways, live PPV just makes it way more fun to follow the scene.

nothing discourages bootlegging more than increasing the amount of people that will want bootlegs

The people that would bootleg would bootleg anyway.

Any argument otherwise is retarded.

Capping it probably has more to do with server capacity and keeping the stream online than anything. Saying otherwise is just more convenient.
