Over the past few weeks there has been an illegal stream of Howardâ€™s SIRIUS show for free online at www.hearhoward100.com and www.hearhoward.org . Personally I think that SIRIUS did the right thing here sending this Cease and Decist (that you can read here) You can talk about this in the GSI Forum here. We are told SIRIUS and Stern are working out some issues in getting the Howard Stern Show streaming at www.sirius.com It is reported that Stern wants to stream his show at www.howardstern.com . SIRIUS wants to make sure that the stream is for subscribers only. We will have to see how this all works out, but SIRIUS and Stern were not happy out these free or â€œstolenâ€� web streams of his show.
A Sirius spokesman called the audio streams online piracy and said the company would do â€œwhatever it takesâ€� to enforce its copyrights. â€œI think Howard, like us, would appreciate people paying for his show,â€� said Patrick Reilly of Sirius.
UPDATE: We are told that SIRIUS sent out a "good number" of cease and decist letters, not only for Howard content but also BUBBA content... The lawyers are working hard at SIRIUS.. .
