"According to our Statfire (http://www.statfire.com/) forecast, the UFC is approaching its 500 million video view milestone on YouTube.

"We will also assist the UFC with identifying unauthorized video uses on YouTube."
Specifically, Bent Pixels helps brands with rights management, data and monetization tools including:

Support in setting up YouTube channels and networks, leveraging Bent Pixels' status as a Certified YouTube MCN (multi-channel network).
