  1. Like many other countries throughout Europe, Ireland is no stranger to pirate site blocking efforts. The Pirate Bay was blocked back in 2009, as part of a voluntary agreement between copyright holders and local ISP Eircom. A few years later the High Court ordered other major Internet providers to follow suit. However, The Pirate Bay is not the only ‘infringing’ site out there. The Motion Picture Association (MPA) has therefore asked the Commercial Court to expand the blockades to other sites. On behalf of several major Hollywood studios, the group most recently targeted a group of the most used torrent and streaming sites;,,,,,, and On Monday the Commercial Court sided with the movie studios ordering all major Irish ISPs to block the sites. The latest order applies to Eircom, Sky Ireland, Vodafone Ireland, Virgin Media Ireland, Three Ireland, Digiweb, Imagine Telecommunications and Magnet Networks. According to Justice Brian McGovern, the movie studios had made it clear that the sites in question infringed their copyrights. As such, there are “significant public interest grounds” to have them blocked. Irish Examiner reports that none of the ISPs opposed the blocking request. This means that new pirate site blockades are mostly a formality now. MPA EMEA President and Managing Director Stan McCoy is happy with the outcome, which he says will help to secure jobs in the movie industry. “As the Irish film industry is continuing to thrive, the MPA is dedicated to supporting that growth by combatting the operations of illegal sites that undermine the sustainability of the sector,” McCoy says. “Preventing these pirate sites from freely disturbing other people’s work will help us provide greater job security for the 18,000 people employed through the Irish film industry and ensure that consumers can continue to enjoy high quality content in the future.” The MPA also obtained similar blocks against,, and last year, which remain in effect to date. The torrent and streaming sites that were targeted most recently have millions of visitors worldwide. While the blockades will make it harder for the Irish to access them directly, history has shown that some people circumvent these measures or simply move to other sites. Several of the targeted sites themselves are also keeping a close eye on these blocking efforts and are providing users with alternative domains to bypass the restrictions, at least temporarily. As such, it would be no surprise if the Hollywood studios return to the Commercial Court again in a few months. Source: TF, for the latest info on copyright, file-sharing, torrent sites and more.

  2. Airbnb has today announced a new feature that will help users manage their payments on the platform. The feature, aptly albeit unimaginatively named Pay Less Up Front, lets users pay for a part of their trip upon booking and the rest near the time of check-in. Before now, Airbnb users had to pay 100 percent of their booking up front. For weekend trips, that wasn’t such a big deal. But… Read More View the full article

  7. Saudi Arabia has just lifted a 35-year-old ban on cinemas, and picked an, uh, interesting movie for the first screening. Ready? The Emoji Movie. Yep. The very first film hitting cinema screens in three and a half decades was 2017's animated feature about a city populated by talking emojis. It's currently sitting at 9 percent on Rotten Tomatoes — although, granted, it has a 39 percent audience score. And it's targeted at children. SEE ALSO: 'The Emoji Movie' has a lovely, timely message. It's not evil. Ignore the meanies. But hey, let's celebrate the fact that it was shown at all. The conservative kingdom's Ministry of Culture and Information agreed to issue licenses for cinemas on Dec. 11, 2017. According to Reuters, the country's first permanent theatres could open as early as March 2018, and the authorities are sponsoring temporary cinemas for now — one, in Jeddah's cultural hall, apparently has a popcorn machine. Films will be censored to adhere to the "moral values" of the kingdom — exactly what these censored films look like remains to be seen. Read more...

  8. Spiders on their own are disconcerting enough. So how about a sack full of tiny little crawling spiders? A video of a funnel web egg being cut open to reveal hundreds of the arachnids inside was posted on the Facebook page of the Australian Reptile Park on Sunday. SEE ALSO: 7 new spider species get their names from 'Game of Thrones' and other hits The park acknowledged it's the "stuff of nightmares" for some people in its post, but said it loves these finds. It's because the Australian Reptile Park is the only place in the country that milks funnel web spiders of their venom, which is used to make antivenom. Read more...
