Joe Hand Promotions is a company that handles the majority of the UFC PPV distribution. For the last few years, they have filed hundreds of lawsuits against businesses across the country, usually bars and restaurants. In 2011 alone, they filed 515 lawsuits across the country. The allegation is that the defendant has shown a boxing fight without the required permission to do so. Although the average price of a UFC fight may be $50 for someone at home, bars and other public places may have to pay thousands. To avoid this, some businesses just order it as if they are at home and then display the fight sometimes even charging a cover charge.
They get caught because investigators go into the businesses to take a head count and pictures. They write a report that is then forwarded to a law firm so that a lawsuit can be prepared.
