VANCOUVER, BC â€“ The highest court of Ireland ordered the ceasing of video websites in accordance with the anti-piracy lawsuit filed by the Motion Pictures Association referring to unlicensed access to video contents.

The said dispute also pointed illicit peer-to-peer video and file transfers as well as video streaming.
The Internet service providers of the country were also asked to make sure that their subscribers do not have access to such content video websites to put a permanent hold on content piracy.
