    No more interest to watch IND-AUS test. Is this a game? Is Aus playing against Nepal or Afganisthan?

    Sorry guys! I was wondering if Clarke was going to try and get 400! Bowling from India has been embarrassing. With Tendulkar, Sehwag, Gambhir, Dravid, etc, in the team, the top order batting is more impressive than Australia's right now - I was worried. Maybe they'll come good in the 2nd inns - and we'll have a subcontinent-style drawn test.

    Satexplorer,
    Will Zim tour of NZ and SA tour of NZ be shown in USA? Has not been decided yet or will not be shown because of collision with other tours and Willow Cricket channel cannot take it?

    UPDATE: Willow TV Piracy case (Ongoing)

    According to Google Groups

    Willow TV: Legal Notice and Offer of Settlement

    Dear

    This email is being sent to you from Willow TV International, Inc. (“Willow TV”), which owns the exclusive rights to distribute and stream cricket matches in the United States and Canada, as well as the rest of North America, including the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 and the national cricket matches for Australia, New Zealand, England and South Africa amongst other boards, for the 2010-2011 season (“Copyright Protected Matches”). Willow TV filed a Federal lawsuit against various website owners that we allege illegally sold pirated downloads and video streams of the Copyright Protected Matches. A copy of the abbreviated lawsuit filed in court in available here. Willow TV subpoenaed the records of these various websites and the evidence indicates that you purchased at least one of the illegal streams offered by at least one of these defendants in violation of law.

    It is a violation of Willow TV’s copyright and the law to purchase or view the illegal stream whether it was knowing or unknowing. Under 17 U.S.C § 501 et seq., anyone who participates in the infringement of a copyright is liable for statutory damages up to $30,000 per infringement, and up to $150,000 if the infringement is willful.

    Willow TV will fully pursue this lawsuit to the fullest extent of the law against those who operate businesses and illegally provide pirated cricket matches in violation of their rights; however, it has no interest in pursuing a lawsuit against the viewers and fans of cricket matches, so we would like to deal with the evidence that has been presented to us in the best way possible.

    We would like to provide you a way out of the continued exposure to liability that comes with viewing cricket matches illegally through pirated websites.

    Complete Release and Waiver of Liability Offer.

    Willow TV will provide you with a onetime release of all claims and liability for any and all past illegal downloads or streaming views of cricket matches you may have purchased or viewed from any of the defendants listed in the attached lawsuit. The release will be provided on the condition that you commit to watching any of your future cricket matches legally through www.willow.tv for the next year. The authorized service is currently $14.99/month and allows you, the customer, to watch the live video streaming of all cricket content offered by Willow TV, on its website www.willow.tv (and on its channel on YouTube, and on smartphones, etc.) for a period of one year. Willow TV is the official license holder for various cricket boards worldwide for this period (including Cricket boards of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, England and others), and it is the only way to watch these matches legally in North America. After the 12 month period, on request, you will receive a release of all past claims and liability from Willow TV for any crickets matches you may have purchased or viewed in violation of Willow TV’s exclusive rights to distribute and stream those matches in North America.

    If you wish to take advantage of this offer for a full release of liability please visit the website www.willow.tv, and purchase the monthly package of $14.99. (Or you can directly buy it by clicking here). Please use the same email id to which this email is sent, as your login id on willow.tv while making the purchase.

    After one year of continued service, the release email will be sent to you on request to legal@willow.tv.

    Alternatively, if you have subscribed to the Willow Cricket Channel on DISH Network or DIRECTV, you can email legal@willow.tv with a copy of your bill showing your active subscription, with your first and last name indicated clearly as the subscriber on file.

    If you do not wish to commit to viewing cricket matches legally through Willow TV you may contact us and we will provide you with a settlement demand based on the number of your purchases and streaming views of cricket matches that were in violation of Willow TV’s rights ($200 per match or $1000 for a package purchased from a pirate site) and a release will be provided after final settlement, or simply do nothing and we will continue our investigation against you and we may be forced to name you as a defendant to the lawsuit. If you are named as a defendant we will pursue the full statutory damages provided in 17 U.S.C § 501 et seq.

    Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
    Willow TV

    Looks like Willow is scheming to get a buck out of the end-user. Patrolling, policing and spying on the end-user? Making sure all cricket fans watch legally. Where and what is the verdict on the accused websites? If they did send this email to mass thousands, they really get discounted out of $7.50. Now that ESPN3 has the ICC tournament rights and the BCCI showing International and Domestic Indian cricket. Both for FREE. Willow TV CEO Vijay Srinivasan enjoying his lost?

    I ignore it. Besides, Willow TV is a victim of the BCCI and former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi. This make Willow and NEO go out of business.

    When I watch ESPN3 through my laptop, the picture sucks. Will ESPN3 will use some TV channels to deliver the content? Also other than laptop or PC, what is option to watch ESPN3 on TV with a good picture quality. Is there any ESPN3 TV box?

    Willow TV from Sunnyvale, CA. Receives a F rating in the Better Business Bureau. Also, poor customer service. No address or phone number. CEO Vijay Srininivasan, a Duke graduate is now going after those pirates. With the cricket fans experience of bad business. Are people watching Willow's streams think that their E-mail addresses and personal information look safe with them? Willow use to charge $299 back in 2003-2007, Half of that price $149 in 2007 and then jacking the price $199 again in 2008-2011. In 2011, Canadian style pricing of $14.99.

    I am not a lawyer. Remember, all of you who watched a Willow TV stream, has agreed to the Willow's end-user agreement. I would join you only if everyone is involved versus Willow TV. If it becomes clear that Willow TV's settlement violates Anti-Trust laws. Willow TV and Willow International went to Northern District Federal Court in San Jose. "Willow International vs Cricklinks". Owners of the alleged websites did not show up, leaving the burden on innocent Cricket fans. The court may have permitted Willow TV's legal team "Pranger Law Group" to issue a subpoena in order to get all of the email addresses from those accused websites.

    Every accused Cricket fan, affected from that burden, you should not take any threats from Willow TV's greed.

    Very interesting traffic at deepbackwardpoint blog website.
