New Article: Afori, Site Blocking in Israel

Afori, Tamir. “Site Blocking in Israel: Contradictory Decisions of the District Court.” Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice 10.10 (2015): 735-6.





Two contradictory judgments were delivered by the District Court in Tel Aviv regarding the application of ‘site blocking’ procedures. In NMC, the court ordered all Israeli ISPs to block access in Israel to the infringing website UniDown. In ZIRA, the court dismissed a request for a temporary order to block access to websites that distributed the computer software ‘Popcorn Time’.
