A group of entertainment companies including Netflix’s production arm, Netflix Studios, has successfully obtained a court injunction directing Telstra, Optus, Vocus, TPG and Vodafone to block their broadband customers from accessing almost 100 sites.
A coalition of three international distributors of TV shows has, at least for now, ditched its efforts to block online services used by the Reelplay set-top box.
A suggestion by Foxtel that its latest application for an anti-piracy injunction be heard ‘on the papers’ has been rejected by a Federal Court judge. Instead a hearing of the application, which if granted will block access to a number of web proxy services, has been scheduled for late August.
Five web proxy services are among a collection of sites that pay TV company Foxtel wants Australia’s major ISPs to block.
A Federal Court judge has rejected the arguments of a website that links to online copies of Greek language movies and TV shows that it should be spared from a site-blocking injunction sought by major movie studios.
You might not realize it, but two out of every 10 of your co-workers might be using pirated software, according to industry statistics. You might be, too, for that matter, particularly if you work in manufacturing or at a small or midsize company with 100 to 500 PCs. You just might not know it.
