Court grants blocking order against websites which allow users stream and download film and TV content

Monday, January 15, 2018 - 04:31 pm

By Ann O’Loughlin

An association representing some of the worlds biggest TV and movie studios has secured a High Court injunction to block several websites involved in the downloading of films and television shows.

The injunction was granted at the Commercial Court today by Mr Justice Brian McGovern who said he was satisfied the websites in question had engaged in widespread infringement of the TV and movies studios copyright.

The were "significant public interest grounds" to grant the orders sought, the Judge said.

The orders, under the 2000 Copyright and Related Act, were sought by the Motion Pictures Association, which represents Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation, Universal, Warner Brothers, Paramount, Disney, Columbia and Sony Pictures. They claimed the sites were breaching their copyright.

The AACS 2.1 copy protection system, used for UHD Blu-ray, has officially been cracked by a company called Arusoft.

As I been reading about this new system; it has only appeared on UHD Blu-rays since May of this year. This is really a disaster for anyone who loves the UHD format and a big bonus for anyone who loves to do the illegal ripping on them. What is wrong with Hollywood these days if they are constantly trying to use this technology & dodge this problem from happening again only to get duped once more by some shrewd people in the know? Are any of these new copy protection systems really that credible to keep with UHD Blu-ray in the long run?

With regards to piracy - what should be legal, is to bypass copy protection/DRM mechanisms on stuff you own a retail copy of. So say you want to watch a movie on your laptop, tablet or phone, but you only own the DVD or Blu-ray? You should be allowed to make a rip for your other devices as long as it is for personal use. I don't agree with this crap that you should have to buy it again in whatever format for whatever price they're selling it at, or pay $2 or $5 per film to convert it like VUDU. If you bought a retail copy, then the person who owns the rights or created the content already made their money. After you paid for it, you should be able to do what you want with it. The reason that we still have these outdated laws here in the United States is because the MPAA has lots of money with which they lobby Congress not to change the laws.

Although it's physically possible to bootleg blu rays it isn't worth the trouble for the DVD man or people buying them.
