Paris court orders blocking of 16 video streaming sites

A Paris civil court has ordered search engines and Internet access providers to block sixteen websites that stream copyrighted content, handing a win to film and television producers’ unions after a two-year legal battle.The unions petitioned the court in 2011 after their requests to block, and others sites went unheeded by Internet providers, including Orange and Vivendi’s SFR and search engines Google and Yahoo, according to the court order issued on Thursday.
