UFC/PPV Viewing Legality
I run a concert venue and want to hold a private, no-cover-charge viewing of UFC 102 on our 300" projection screen. I am unsure if this is legal, illegal, or "in the grey."
Does anyone have any information or links that would help me?
I wanted to invite friends... who could invite friends/co-workers. I could easily see 100 people showing up. Also, the concert venue is owned by a non-profit organization (doubt that matters). I have heard of churches being sued for showing The Super Bowl on a screen that is larger than 60."
I want to keep showing these PPV fights at this venue in the future. Honestly, if there is a chance for legal trouble.. it could easily happen to us. The local venues that do show the fight have awful facilities. I could see their business being affected by my good-will gesture (I have room for 300 people). Some bar owner would "blow-the-whistle" on us sooner or later.
