ABS-CBN FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST 22 PIRATE SITES IN US FEDERAL COURT FOR COPYRIGHT AND TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT

In a continuing effort to protect its intellectual property from global piracy, Filipino media and entertainment network ABS-CBN recently filed a Complaint and a Motion for Temporary Restraining Order in U.S. Federal District Court against 22 pirate websites for damages of over US$40 million.  On May 1, the federal judge in the case granted a preliminary injunction order.  All of the domains are currently blocked and shut down.

“As mentioned before, we are committed to implementing the zero tolerance policy on piracy of ABS-CBN Global COO Raffy Lopez.  We know that over ninety percent of these pirate sites contain malware which can harm people by stealing the banking and personal information from their computers or phones.  We will continue to shut down these pirate sites to protect the public from harm. There is only one genuine ABS-CBN internet subscription service that is safe for our fans to use and that is TFC and TFC.tv,” said ABS-CBN AVP & Head of Global Anti-Piracy Elisha Lawrence.
