LaLiga and Moviestar Plus Block Over 70 IPTV and Torrent Sites

LaLiga and Moviestar Plus Block IPTV and Torrent Sites

LaLiga and Moviestar Plus have blocked over 70 IPTV and torrent sites.

At the conclusion of this piece, you can view the comprehensive list of banned domains.

To combat piracy, LaLiga, the Spanish football league, and Movistar Plus+, operated by Telefónica, are intensifying their efforts.

LaLiga has a history of taking measures to combat online piracy. They recently aided in the arrest of three individuals and reported IPTV apps as illegal.

LaLiga is no stranger when it comes to battling online piracy.

Their ongoing objective is to protect the intellectual property of live matches and prevent viewers from accessing it for free.

To accomplish this, they have directed local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to prevent access to pirate sites, as recent events have shown.

Nevertheless, the selection of specific sites for the blocklist has incited controversy and led to heated discussions.

ISP Blockings: A Brief History

Media corporations have historically sought ISP blocking injunctions, which have evolved over time. In the past, their focus was on movie and TV show sites, but now they are targeting live TV streams, particularly sports broadcasts.

Due to the complexity of live streams versus static websites, courts have become more inclined to grant rightsholders greater flexibility in their anti-piracy efforts.

In their campaign against live TV stream piracy, LaLiga and Movistar Plus+ have obtained court approval for ISP blocking.

In a bold move in 2022, Telefónica persuaded a judge to require ISPs to block IPTV streaming servers within three hours of notification.

Recently, a local tech news site called Bandaancha published a list of nearly 80 domains slated for ISP blockage.

This list mainly comprises domains associated with illegal IPTV services or illicit streaming websites.

Notably, a significant portion of the list is labeled as ‘torrent’, a departure from the usual association with pirated live sports streams.

Ace Stream

The decision to include Ace Stream in the blocklist has prompted debate. While acestream.org doesn’t directly host copyrighted content, some individuals utilize its software for copyright infringement.

However, the developers of Ace Stream assert that their software is content-neutral and entirely legal.

Another domain on the list is www.futbolgratis.workers.dev, which acknowledges the blockade imposed by Telefónica and redirects users to another site.

Given its role in providing Ace Stream links for illegal live streams, its inclusion in the blocklist appears to be justified.

The Controversy Around Explodie.org

One notable error is the inclusion of 6explodie.org, a non-existent domain. The intended target seems to be explodie.org, which has sparked controversy.

Explodie.org is operated by developer Jacob Taylor, who is an advocate for net neutrality.

He operates a public BitTorrent tracker that complies with DMCA takedown requests. Nevertheless, his personal site, which is far from a platform for piracy, appears to be facing undeserved censorship in Spain.

The Grey Area of Public BitTorrent Trackers

The list also includes other public BitTorrent trackers, such as open.acgtracker.com and internetwarriors.net, though the reasons for their inclusion remain unclear.

These trackers do not directly host content but facilitate torrent transfers from other sources. Blocking such sites, which have legitimate uses, raises questions about the proportionality of the response under EU law.

LaLiga and Moviestar Plus IPTV Blocking – Final Thoughts

Most of the domains on the blocklist have valid reasons for inclusion. Some have changed domains, while others openly engage in piracy.

However, there is a genuine concern when there is limited transparency and wrongful blockings occur.
