Too Long; Didn't Read

A group of independent movie companies asked a Virginia federal court to grant millions in copyright damages against a popular fork of the piracy app Popcorn Time. The request for a default judgment also comes with a far-reaching injunction which, among other things, would require Internet providers to block several PopcornTime domains. The Motion Picture Association (MPA) recognized this threat early on and pressured the original developers to throw in the towel. However, the fork’s developers haven’t been spared from legal pressure.
