HBO takes immediate action after Trump's Game of Thrones tweet

The scale of the global content piracy problem was again underlined this week with the news that the first episode of the new season of Game Of Thrones was pirated nearly 55 million times in the first 24 hours after launch, according to analytics firm Muso.

We have to agree that Game of Thrones has covered a long and wide journey with eight seasons.

US television network HBO has asked Donald Trump to cease using its intellectual property after the US President shared another Game Of Thrones-style meme on Twitter.

Chris Spadaccini, HBO's Executive Vice President and head of marketing, said during Variety's Entertainment Marketing Summit in March this year that they don't want to pick a fight with the president.

HBO also responded by saying, "How do you say trademark misuse in Dothraki?"

Game of Thrones only has one more traditional-sized episode left before it takes the gloves off and starts unleashing movie-length episodes all the way to the finish line, and some new images have emerged from the next episode.

In comparison, the official HBO viewing figures were 17.4 million, the most watched episode of Game of Thrones ever recorded.
