MPAA Quit Censorship Battle With Tech Giants

MPAA Quit Censorship Battle With Tech Giants

The Motion Picture Association of America has dropped its request for a preliminary injunction that would make search engines, Internet service providers and hosting companies to stop doing business with MovieTube. The move was made right after Google, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Yahoo claimed that such request could be considered a broad censorship attempt.

Back in July, the movie industry sued a number of popular movie streaming services operating under the MovieTube brand. In its complaint, the MPAA asked for a preliminary injunction ordering 3rd-party companies to stop linking or providing services to the targeted websites.

However, Facebook, Google, Twitter, Yahoo and Tumblr claimed that such request went too far and explained to the court that if satisfied, the request could result in broad censorship of the web, which does not differ from the blocking provisions listed in the controversial SOPA bill.

It looked like this battle had to become another standoff between the entertainment industry and the tech companies, but a letter submitted by the Motion Picture Association of America yesterday put it on hold. The agency informed the court that it didn’t need a preliminary injunction anymore, because the targeted services have been offline for a few weeks already. However, the MPAA lawyers made it clear that though plaintiffs are no longer seeking preliminary injunctive relief, they will still seek permanent relief in the near future.

Industry observers believe that the decision of the MPAA to drop the request may very well have been triggered by the brief of the third parties – largely, the tech giants. The matter is that the reason the MPAA provided for dropping the request is questionable – actually, the MovieTube websites were already offline when the group submitted the injunction request.

The MPAA now points out that the opposition brief should no longer be considered by the court now that the group has pulled its request for an injunction. The MPAA also informed the court that to the extent the third parties are requesting what amounts to an advisory opinion, such a request is now considered improper and should not be entertained.

In other words, it looks like it was a strategic move from the Motion Picture Association of America not to challenge the tech giants, at least for now. Nevertheless, the movie industry group maintains that website blocking remains one of its main anti-piracy priorities. This means that this battle is far from over and may reignite in the future.
