The FBI is rolling out a new online streaming service, uva streaming, to fight online piracy.
The service is the FBI’s latest move in its ongoing war on online piracy and is one of a series of initiatives to combat piracy in the United States, which is already under increased pressure due to the Great Recession.
“The streaming video market is worth $100 billion, and it is a growing opportunity,” U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz said in a news conference announcing the new streaming service on Wednesday.
“We have an opportunity to make sure that that opportunity is available to our citizens.”UVA is the new name for the FBI streaming service.
The bureau is now known as the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
It launched its new streaming website, uvabox.com, in March 2017, and the FBI is now using the service to help combat online piracy, according to a federal court filing.
“It is vital that we ensure that the federal government has the resources to provide the federal courts with the tools to enforce our nation’s laws,” Ortiz said.
The FBI is also using its streaming site to help fight online child pornography.
UVA offers a tool that users can use to report and block the download of child pornography on the site.
The service has been available since January and has been used by many law enforcement agencies across the country.
The FBI said that since the service launched, it has made an estimated $50 million in revenue through the service, according the filing.
