Film sites blocked

The High Court has granted an application by six major film studios to block SolarMovie and TubePlus, two websites providing access to infringing television and film content. The sites did not host the content themselves, but provided a database that could be searched by users, who would then click on a link to get to the content, hosted by third parties. One of the sites also allowed users to download material. The judge held that the sites were infringing copyright.
