AVIA welcomes Singapore High Court order to block illegal STB apps

The Asia Video Industry Association (AVIA), has issued its official approval for the High Court of Singapore’s order to local ISPs to block access to popular illegal applications that are frequently sold pre-loaded on android TV boxes.

The trade association for the video industry and ecosystem in Asia Pacific noted that such illicit streaming devices (ISDs) “flagrantly” infringe copyright by acting as gateways to websites streaming pirated content and in the territory are pre-loaded on TV boxes which are overtly sold in retail outlets such as Sim Lim Square, IT exhibitions and on popular e-markets.
