Morning;

Sorry to have to point this out (again) but in light of the recent establishing of the iFollow service, there's been an upsurge in posts offering illegal links to streams of Forest matches and discussion of methods to circumvent licensing restrictions using VPN technology and the like.

Unfortunately, as you should all know, this is completely illegal in current UK law for those in the UK, as the content of such matches is the copyright of the EFL and its member clubs. Indeed, this is where a fair chunk of their revenue comes from.

Therefore, we must again stress that any link posting a direct URL to a stream will - must - be removed by the Moderating team.

We do not like censorship, but in this case we truly have little choice, otherwise the Forum could potentially be legally liable for advertising such links and that could get us into serious legal grief.

There is a thread to discuss the iFollow service, please post comments and feedback on that there (and if needed, these can be fed back to the club and the Football League, as has already happened with the acknowledgement that they will extend audio coverage of games).

Again, apologies for what may seem invasive and heavy-handed Moderating, but we really do not have a choice here. I would rather be able to ensure we can continue to enjoy LTLF for many seasons to come, than expose ourselves to potential legal action that could get the entire Forum closed.

Any questions on the above, please feel free to PM Chriscl or Flagman.

Cheers,
pp Chris.
