OlarteMoure - Derecho de autor - Ecuador

On 6 June 2019, by order of the Ecuadorian Copyright Office (SENADI), Internet providers will have to block access to five sites of the “rojadirecta” platform due to copyright violations.

The measure was taken in response to a lawsuit filed by Fox Latin America and the National Soccer League.

The Copyright Office claims that, “as more lawsuits are filed, more websites will be banned.”
