In the course of a judicial process started by DTS Distribuidora de Televisión Digital (Canal +), a Spanish court has ordered ISPs to provisionally block access to the famous pirate website, which provides users with links to sporting events around the world. Said blocking shall be made effective if the website does not stop offering access to illicit audiovisual content in seven days.

This decision is in line with the new stance adopted by the Spanish legislator and the judiciary against piracy, which has resulted in the amendment of the Spanish Criminal Code and the Intellectual Property Act to better protect rights-holders, as well as in prison sentences for owners of pirate websites.
