British ISPs Ordered to Block eBook Websites

British ISPs Ordered to Block eBook Websites

The Publishers Association has got a court order that requires major “pirate” eBook websites to be blocked at the ISP level. This is the first action for book publishers and it requires major UK ISPs to block such websites as Freshwap, Ebookee and LibGen within 10 days.

Instead of targeting piracy websites with direct legal action, the largest content creators try to disrupt unauthorized operations with broader strokes. They usually use method such as site blocking – it has become quite popular all over Europe. Over 120 domains have already been blocked by the major UK Internet service providers.

This week, the Publishers Association (PA), which accounts for over 100 members with combined revenues of £4.7 billion, went to court and asked to block a number of eBook-focused download websites. The copyright owners claimed that according to their investigations, more than 80% of the content distributed through the eBook websites is infringing. Overall, the blocked websites were said to offer more than 10 million titles.

The publishers attempted to take action and sent about million takedown notices directly to the websites, plus asked Google to remove 1.75 million related URLs from search results. After that, the group sued the leading British providers, including BT, Virgin Media, Sky, TalkTalk and EE over mass infringement, claiming that the major Internet service providers have knowledge that their subscribers are violating copyright.

As a result, the UK’s High Court sided with the publishers, and it was no surprise, because the local broadband providers have long since given up defending these cases. The Publishers Association explained that at least 30% of publisher revenues come from digital sales, but online infringement deprives them of this fair compensation, thus leaving writers with no money and disabling publishers to continue to innovate and invest in new talent and material. The Internet service providers are given 10 days to block the sites.

The industry experts note that the High Court injunctions are a new anti-piracy tool for the Publishers Association. Aside from its regular takedown work with search engines, the group is also involved in the Operation Creative, which resulted in taking down a domain operated by eBook site OnRead in the past.
