Premier League Earns Piracy Block
The Premier League has successfully obtained a court order forcing UK internet service providers to block a football streaming website.
Video streams showing football from across the globe is linked to by FirstRow1.eu, which is operated from Sweden, and this is a breach of copyright according to a High Court ruling.
It is to be blocked before the new season, which starts on August 17.
This is the first time a sport-related site has been blocked in the UK.
