The Premier League has won an injunction from the Commercial Court in Ireland to have live 'pirate' streams of its football matches blocked by local ISPs. Under the order, ISPs Eircom, Sky, Virgin and Vodafone will respond to real-time information supplied by the League's anti-piracy partners. The injunction mirrors a similar program previously established in the UK.
In a case filed in California, Cloudflare stands accused of failing to terminate customers that have been repeatedly called out as copyright infringers. The case wasn't filed by Hollywood or the major record labels, but by two manufacturers of wedding dresses. The CDN provider tried to have the case dismissed recently but in a new order, the court refuses to do so.
