Belgian Copyright Holders Seek Piracy Blockades

Belgian Copyright Holders Seek Piracy Blockades

The Belgian Entertainment Association, which unites companies from the music, movie, and videogame industries, has urged ISPs to block a number of pirate sites in the country. The outfit demands local Internet service providers to block 9 of the most popular streaming services referring to the principles established by the EU Court of Justice.

We can remind you that Belgium was one of the first countries to block The Pirate Bay under the relevant court order 6 years ago. That move resulted from a lawsuit between the Belgian Anti-Piracy Foundation and two major ISPs. The Belgian Entertainment Association was formed 9 years ago, but only now it has filed a lawsuit at the French commercial court in Brussels, asking local ISPs to block their subscribers’ access to a number of “pirate” websites.

The copyright holders explained that they decided to start from targeting a number of popular streaming sites which offer copyrighted content on a massive scale and without permission. As such, they seek a court order confirming the infringement and imposing website blocking measures on the ISPs. On the other hand, the ISPs first want confirmation that the targeted websites are acting illegally.

The Belgian Entertainment Association points out that website blocking is nothing new in the country, where The Pirate Bay and Popcorn Time have been blocked for a long time now. The outfit also cites foreign statistics, which shows that website blocking has a positive impact on the legal offer and massively drops visits to the blocked websites (about 90% in case of The Pirate Bay). The copyright owners believe that website blocking actions are efficient and necessary to support the continuing development of the legal offer and increase consumer confidence in the online economy. For example, more than 1,000 domains are blocked on copyright grounds in the United Kingdom, followed by Portugal, where a voluntary mechanism is in place.

However, in the neighboring Netherlands, the site blocking process has been much more drawn out – instead of complying with the requests, the local Internet service providers object at every turn after being asked to block The Pirate Bay. The TPB case was referred to the EU Court of Justice and will eventually go to the Dutch Supreme Court.

Mike_Oxhard avatarI didn't know Belgium actually had any copy-written material worth pirating, except maybe a couple of waffle recipes.
