Cloudflare Was Required To Censor Anti-Censorship Website

The Recording Industry Association of America recently obtained a preliminary injunction ordering the popular CDN service to cancel services to all domains containing "Grooveshark" in their names. This is how Cloudflare was forced to disconnect "groovesharkcensorship.cf," a website specifically designed to protest overbroad censorship.

More than a year ago, Grooveshark ceased to exist after settling with the music industry. Of course, the copies of the site emerged soon enough. The RIAA couldn’t like this news and was quick to obtain an injunction that prevents ISPs from offering their services to such websites. The RIAA hopes to prevent further copyright infringements through the lawsuit, but this is not all.

The matter is that such development shows how receptive the courts are to the notion of injunctions against domain registrars, hosting companies, Internet service providers and search engines. A number of tech firms, including CloudFlare, protested the court injunction, because they believed the requirement to ban all domain names containing “Grooveshark” was too broad. In particular, CloudFlare claimed that the order limited free-speech and impacted legitimate users visiting innocent websites.

CloudFlare brought an example: the company was forced to terminate the account of “groovesharkcensorship.cf,” a service that protested the broad injunction. The company informed the affected users about its actions and explained that the court order doesn’t allow it to provide any services using the Grooveshark trademark in their names.

Despite the opposition, the RIAA maintains that the requirements are quite appropriate. However, CloudFlare asked the court to change the injunction and make it target only the domain names provided by the record labels. Finally, the court ruled in favor of CloudFlare, saying that the service is no longer required to ban all Grooveshark-related domains, while pointing out that if the CDN service knows about an infringing domain name, it has to take action on its own.

In other words, it seems that the censored anti-censorship website finally won and has served its purpose.
