The Dutch P2P streaming site Myp2p.eu has prevailed in a court case against pay TV provider C More Entertainment AB, according to a forum post. Myp2p.eu is popular with sports fans that want to watch soccer, football or baseball games online.

The site doesn't stream these competitions itself, but instead links to shows streamed through Chinese P2P streaming clients like Sopcast or PPStream. It also provides instructions on how to use these clients.

Myp2p.eu started to take down links to games of the English Premier League and other competitions late January after it had been sued by C More Entertainment in a Dutch court. However, all the links are available again. From the site:

"We won the case against C More! The Dutch court ruled that C More mistakenly initiated injunction proceedings because the case was to complicated, both factually as well as legally. C More was ordered to repay us all our legal costs."

This will most likely not be the last case against Myp2p and similar sites. The Guradian reported recently that the English Premier League is stepping up its fight against streaming media piracy, and other leagues aren't sitting idle either. US-based Major League Baseball reportedly has three people on staff that do nothing but search for unlicensed streams.
