    After a lengthy judicial process, Rojadirecta.me has been forced to stop its pirate streaming activities and indemnify Mediapro due to unfair competition and breaking copyright regulations.

    rojadirecta cerradaThe commercial court of the city of A Coruña warned the site about its activities a year ago and has now found its owner Puerto 80 guilty of breaking the copyright law. The site has been forced to stop streaming any game to which Mediapro manages TV rights in Spain, and Internet service providers (ISP) have been told to block user access to the site.

    The company will also have to pay Mediapro compensation, although the amount has not yet been disclosed.

    The court’s decision establishes an important precedent in Spain’s jurisprudence, as it opens a window for future piracy cases to be solved under similar terms.

    The sentence has been welcomed by Mediapro, which originally started the case against Rodadirecta, as it sees the court’s ruling as a step toward protecting its business and reducing the piracy rate in the country.
