I'm not into this case, but it doesn't seem too legal if you're using some backdoor methods to access a service which is intentionally blocked by the original provider in some countries.
As I said, I don't know at the moment about this specific thread, but from reading this thread here I figured it had to do with ESPN360 and remembered last year, for example, something similiar with Tennis Australia as they sent us mails not to display and/or promote Tennis Australia Audio Visual content as this was an an infringement of Tennis Australia's rights. Therefore we had to remove threads and posts in threads.
