US Authorities Seized Legal Spanish Streaming Website

The American Immigrations and Customs Enforcement has seized Spain-based stream linking website despite the fact that the courts in Spain have repeatedly handed out a decision about the legality of the website in that country.


The US’ ICE is moving further, trying to prove that everyone’s fears could come true when the controversial COICA legislation is enforced. Today we can see all the downsides of the proposed measure, which is actually designed to provide the Department of Justice with an “expedited process” for closing down websites to “prevent the importation into US of goods and services from Internet websites engaged in infringing activities”. The recent news is that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement has seized a foreign service having no connections with the United States, which has already been ruled legal by courts in its home country.

Rojadirecta.org was a popular website, ranked #70 worldwide and engaged in offering links to streams of different sporting events. The domain name of the site was seized by the US’ ICE as part of its still ongoing “Operation In our Sites”. The US authorities previously announced that the operation is necessary to close down the services that threaten economic opportunities and financial stability of the country’s businesses, suppress innovation and destroy jobs.

With all those intentions being quite noble, the only problem is that the courts in Spain, where the site resides, have repeatedly ruled that the service in question is abiding by the county’s law. Visitors to the site are redirected to Rojadirecta.com, where they can see a message saying that a long judicial process with the Spanish police, the Spanish Attorney General’s Office and the Spanish justice involved resulted in defending and deciding the legality of the service. In addition, the operators of the site pointed at the lack of control over the generic domain names which appeared to be controlled by US companies and which are now censored by the American authorities as they want without a proper legal process.

While Rojadirecta appeared to have regained control over its homepage of the .org domain name of the service, it moved the material and streaming link pages to .com, .me, .es, and .in versions of the site. Today the service is seeking legal advice.

Armando_G avatarYet again, American crusaders overstepping their authority. Do the laws and courts of another country mean so little to them that they honestly believe that they can ignore them with impunity?

This latest effort to restrict the internet to what they believe is acceptable is a blatant and deliberate attempt at taking total control of the web. Thankfully they are not going unchallenged.
The attacks (because thats what they are) on citizens of other countries are ignoring legal and jurisdictional boundaries, and will only serve to make those who choose to provide these services work harder, and become more of a 'threat' (a joke in itself.. the entertainment industry and its ridiculous pricing is its own biggest enemy) to their income.
As it stands now, the majority of these sites do more to advertise the good shows a network produces and proliferate them to an audience that a traditional broadcast model can never achieve. Shutting them down serves only to cut off a large, and in all likelyhood, more loyal audience which will then seek the material with more determination.
Good luck to the site owners who have had their domain name STOLEN by ICE, and I hope they sue them for every penny they can get.

fusseltier avatarthe Us has no rights to do anything in other countries unless it is legal and approved by the laws in the other country.
US laws do not apply in other countries.
the only way they seized domains in spain is with permission, and if they didn't have permission, they broke the law and the company that let them have their way was totally wrong to allow them to seize the domains.
the US would have to get permission from the EU and also the spanish government once the US proved they had proof of a crime and that what the people were doing was illegal in spain and or the EU.
