Pirates of the Olympian

NBC is streaming a staggering amount of Olympic content, making it a tempting target for pirates.

It’s Thursday, Aug. 2, around 3:15 p.m. EST, and rivals Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte are about to go toe-to-toe in the men’s 200 meter race. NBC is betting that millions of working Americans will want to stream that race live. And it’s going to great lengths to make sure they do it legally.
