    Canada's Federal Court has approved a new update of the site-blocking injunction against pirate IPTV provider GoldTV. The rightsholders used an undercover investigator to track down new domain names. Interestingly, the latest order no longer targets any of the original domains, which are no longer in use.

    Late last year, Canada’s Federal Court approved the first piracy blockade in the country.

    Following a complaint from three major media companies, Rogers, Bell and TVA, the Court ordered ISPs to block access to domains and IP-addresses of the pirate IPTV service GoldTV.

    The blocking injunction sets a new precedent that could have far-reaching consequences. It effectively opens the door to similar blocking requests, which could ultimately target hundreds of sites, as we have seen in other countries around the world.
