Planning on watching Game of Thrones at the bar tonight? You had better check if it’s still screening before you go, as HBO may have sent your bar a cease and desist, ordering them to stop public viewings of the show.

Business Insider reports that HBO

has sent a cease and desist letter to Videology, telling them to stop showing “Game of Thrones,” […] “They said that it’s not allowed to be shown in a public setting,” the bar’s co-owner, James Leet, told Zarum, adding that this is the first time the bar has been asked not to screen a particular show.

Videology is a relatively small Williamsburg bar, so if they are getting cease and desists, it would probably be in your best interest to call ahead before heading to your bar tonight to watch the show.

If HBO sends out to many legal notices, we may not get a chance to see amazing reaction videos anymore…

Obviously spoilers lie ahead
