These are two indisputable facts! Let's not make the mistake, though, of assuming that they overlap.
This week, HBO confirmed that it sent takedown notices to Periscope, the Twitter-owned emporium of bored iPhone owners showing off their cats in real time. At issue were several streams of the network's Game of Thrones season five premiere that had found their way onto the service, thanks to a handful of unscrupulous users.
Devoting serious resources to Periscope and Meerkat piracy is like swatting away a ladybug in a room full of vipers.
If you're not familiar with Periscope or Meerkat, or know of them but haven't actually used them, you're in the vast majority and should be applauded for your restraint and/or focus on more vital aspects of human existence.
