Every ISP in the US Must Block These Three Pirate Streaming Services

The order affects, as well as related domains

A federal judge has ordered all internet service providers in the United States to block three pirate streaming services operated by Doe defendants who never showed up to court and hid behind false identities.

The blocking orders affect, and, as well as related domains listed in the rulings and any other domains where the copyright-infringing websites may resurface in the future. The orders came in three essentially identical rulings issued on April 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Each ruling provides a list of 96 ISPs that are expected to block the websites, including Comcast, Charter, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. But the rulings say that all ISPs must comply even if they aren't on the list.
