Unauthorized Stream Takedown ServiceYour Ooyala Backlot provider account can be configured to allow you to stop unauthorized streaming in realtime. Then, to stop unauthorized access to an asset as it is streaming, use Rights Locker to delete the entitlement or contact your Ooyala Customer Support Manager to do it for you. The deletion of the entitlement causes stream takedown to occur immediately. See Stopping Unauthorized Streams for details on how this works.
