Breaking News: International TV streaming platforms are involved in multiple copyright infringement lawsuits. Recently, the production company won, and won BIG. This anti-piracy win of the century ordered US-based ISPs to BLOCK certain sites that were involved in copyright infringement. As a result, if the ISPs abide by these orders the U.S. would no longer be able to reach these particular sites.
Moshe Edery, a producer and cinema investor, has warned major credit card companies like Masterard, Visa, and American Express that their continuation to process payment for pirated streaming sites would end in legal action against them. Torrent Freak says:
This is huge considering that just last year three pirate streaming sites were targeted and met with lawsuits, including Israeltv.com, Israel.tv, and the most popular with millions of viewers each month, Sdarot.tv.
Earlier this month, the court ordered all three streaming sites to pay over $7.6M in infringement damages. They were also banned from “streaming, distributing, and making any of their copyrighted works available to the public.”
But the biggest and most significant site-blocking injunction was for US-based ISPs, who now needed to block any domains used by pirate sites, and any ones that might be used in the future.
