Popular pirate site Rojadirecta ordered to cease operations

A court in La Coruña, Spain, ordered the site Rojadirecta, very popular in Latin America, to cease immediately its transmissions of soccer matches for violating intellectual property rights.

In this way, the court accepted the lawsuit filed by Mediapro and GolT. Thus, Rojadirecta must stop providing the links that give access to the transmissions of games protected by intellectual property.

The judgment also established that the conduct of the defendants has caused damages to the claimants and, as a result, they are obliged to compensate them. However, the amount will be determined in a later process.  The resolution can be appealed to the Provincial Court of La Coruña.
