Countdown to De La Hoya v. Pacquiao: 30 Days and Counting!
- Many thanks and deserved recognition go out to all agencies that
participated in last weekend's "Double-The-Money" piracy
surveillance. Most investigators met with success on the Latin Fury
telecast, and although unlawful exhibition of the Mijares fight was more
limited, we are pleased to report several agencies identified commercial
locations unlawfully exhibiting both events, and will be paid double as
Our focus now is on the De La Hoya v. Pacquiao event on Saturday,
December 6th. Last year's De La Hoya fight shattered the record for
PPV buys, revenue, and commercial piracy. Investigators working for our
firm out performed those working elsewhere by leaps and bounds. Dozens
of agencies realized five-figure paydays conducting surveillance.
We will finish 2008 in grand style with a tune-up fight this weekend
(Abraham v. Marquez II ), UFC 91: Couture v. Lesnar next Saturday 11/15,
the El Salvador v. Costa Rica CONCACAF Tournament Game on Wednesday
11/19, De La Hoya v. Pacquiao on 12/6, and UFC 92: The Ultimate on
December 27th. We being 2009 with Affliction's: Day of Reckoning on
Saturday, January 24th.
We take great responsibility in providing the investigative community
with honest evaluations of the piracy potential of our client's
events. If we tell you an event is "much anticipated" or a "blockbuster"
we believe it is exactly that. If we expect very little piracy,
we'll tell you as much candidly. We also pride ourselves on a
handshake relationship that we have enjoyed with investigative
professionals for nearly 15 years. One cannot help but notice that the
auditing outfits have recently abandoned their long-standing
requirements that "auditors" execute exclusive one-year contracts in a
desperate move to induce investigator participation.
Look we're attorneys and we've never used such contracts. We
find them offensive and needless. Investigators work for our clients
through our law firm because we pay considerably more and treat them
like professionals. No contracts, never a log sheet, never some
"certification". We don't restrict investigators from canvassing
prior pirates and we don't require pirate locations to have a
minimum capacity or any other nonsensical criteria. You can work with us
and our clients whenever and wherever you want, for the least amount of
paperwork and the most amount of money, plain and simple.
Finally, for licensed private investigators who venture out this weekend
and come home empty-handed don't be discouraged. Please contact my
staff or I about the investigative assignments where you can really make
money, and we'll get you started today.
