EPL Secures Blocking Order Against Illegal Live Football Streaming Web Site
Published July 17, 2013
COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT: The London DAILY MIRROR reported a judge said the orders were justified as the operators of the "very popular" website were making millions of pounds from copyright infringement. The judge said FirstRow was "profiting from infringement on a large scale" by making match broadcasts available "to persons who are not entitled to view them either because they have not subscribed to the broadcaster's service, or because the broadcaster has only been licensed by FAPL for a different territory." The injunction is against the U.K.'s six main retail Internet service providers -- British Sky Broadcasting, BT, Everything Everywhere, TalkTalk, Telefonica UK and Virgin Media (DAILY MIRROR, 7/16).
