Sirius shuts down Stern stream

Two unauthorized Web sites that were rebroadcasting Howard Stern's Sirius satellite radio show via a Web audio stream shut down over the weekend. HearHoward.org posted a notice saying that it has shut down due to the cease and desist letter it received from Sirius. The domain name of the second site, HearHoward100.com, is now for sale on eBay. The Boston Herald reported Friday that Sirius considered the audio streams "online piracy." The Herald said an unidentified Boston man was an administrator of the site. A blogger named Brad Beckett also claimed to be behind the site.

I was the first to receive one but since it also involved my friend at hearhoward.org I decided to forward him a copy.
