Hollywood Injunction Blocked UK Streaming Sites

The MPA has obtained its first new High Court injunction in more than 12 months targeting several leading streaming services. 6 years ago, the major movie studios of the MPA decided that website blocking could be a solution to mass online piracy and targeted Usenet-indexing website Newzbin. Industry experts called it somewhat a soft target as Newzbin had already been declared as operating illegally in the United Kingdom. At the time, the High Court ruled in the studios’ favor and ordered Internet service provider BT to block the website. It set a precedent in the UK and was used by recording, publishing and sports industries to block hundreds of infringing websites.

Now new websites get regularly blocked as well, with copyright owners being able to add new domains to existing court orders in case the domains are deemed to be “closely associated” with a previously blocked website. For instance, this is true for new TPB and KickassTorrents proxy sites. Nevertheless, recently a number of websites have become unavailable via British broadband providers that were not “closely associated” with already blocked portals. This means that the entertainment industry has obtained a new High Court order.

Indeed, ISP Virgin Media announced that it has blocked a number of streaming websites in accordance with an injunction obtained by the MPA in May. This injunction was granted under Section 97a of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act, as usual. The previous such order was obtained in April 2015. According to industry watchers, the reach of the MPA’s applications will continue to grow, with other websites with a similar name or functionality being blocked without having to obtain a new one.

BaBaDapper avatarIIRC it was Virgin who were the fastest...faster than Barry Allen...to start blocking sites. And they have done it again! This is the reason I will always try to avoid using them as an ISP.

I would love to know the names of those blocked portals though! Unfortunately in Site Rules I think I saw it is an ET offense to mention other sites (?) so better not answer.
