UK Court Forces Big Broadband ISPs to Block 8 Internet Video Piracy Sites

Roshan Dwivedi Published on : 30 May 2016

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPA) has convinced the High Court to force all of the major broadband ISPs in the United Kingdom (BT, Sky Broadband, Virgin Media, TalkTalk, EE etc.) to block 8 additional websites that were found to facilitate Internet copyright infringement (piracy).

The MPA first made a request for ISPs to voluntarily block the sites, which is traditionally refused because there needs to some legal ground for imposing default blocks. Failing that the Rights Holder launched an injunction against the providers, which succeeded in harnessing Section 97A of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act (CDPA) to force ISPs into imposing a court ordered block.

So far well over 100 websites have been blocked from the view of broadband subscribers via this approach.
