The European Commission has launched the actions on live content piracy initiative, to provide a toolbox to combat the illegal broadcasting of live events, in particular sports events. Building on relevant EU legislation, the Commission will encourage Member States and private actors to use the tools available in EU law to tackle illegal live streaming more effectively.

It is noted that the call for submissions is open for comments from 13 January 2023 to 10 February 2023. The input of Member States and agencies will be taken into account during the further development and refinement of this initiative. Feedback received will be published on the relevant website and must therefore comply with the feedback rules.
