cricfree.tv suspended by pipcu london policeOne of the biggest free “sports streaming” site has been banned by City of London Police (PIPCU) in the early hours of this morning. This came as a big surprise as fron what I know of the site, its domain and server are registered and hosted in countries where one would thought this UK cryber police wont reach. But credit to PIPCU who managed to get their hands on one of the biggest sports streaming site ahead of the FIFA World CUp.

Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU) has been very busy this year as they have suspended some of the biggest streaming sites and a couple of months ago they took out a similar operations where they suspended sports streaming sites like cricfree.tv and a few others.

The Reason Behind Suspension is Copyright infringing:

The reason behind the suspension is ofcourse to protect the Intellectual Property of companies concerned. Cricfree has always provided free live streams for almost all the big sporting events, be it Premier League, Formula 1, UFC or WWE stuff they had streaming for everything. but they are not the only site to get hit by PIPCU.

boxingguru, Nutjob and other similar sports streaming sites were suspended last month on 09th April and today PIPCU the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit has ran a simrlar operation where they managed to get hold of a few streaming domains.

More Update Coming Soon: We will be posting more updated regarding this news, please check bakc later for more information, we might actualy have an interview with the team behind “cricfree.tv”
