[FYI] Von der unaufhaltsamen Fragmentierung des NETZES ...

Soccer crunch match divides the net

Sky Sports will attempt to block out Internet traffic from overseas 
tomorrow as it broadcasts the England vs Scotland football match live 
on its website.  

The Euro 2000 qualifier will be broadcast free on the Internet by Sky 
at 2pm, as well as on its satellite TV network. But restrictions to 
its broadcasting license mean it can only let Internet viewers within 
the UK and Eire watch the game.  

Uunet, which along with BT will provide the live data streams, will 
use specially programmed Cisco routers to prevent the feed crossing 
the Atlantic or the Channel. But it admits some overseas viewers may 
find a way in.
