A judge blocks a website which pirated newspapers and books

The Central Court of Administrative Litigation authorized the blocking of https://flipax2.net's access. This page allows users to gain unauthorised access to over 1,500 book titles, and nearly 1,700 periodicals. (newspapers, magazines). CEDRO, an association that represents the interests of authors and publishers, requested the decision from the Intellectual Property Commission of Ministry of Culture and Sports.

CEDRO continues to fight digital piracy and tries to end illegal practices such as this. Jorge Corrales (CEO of CEDRO) said that it was always a good thing that one of the pirated pages we pursue daily with our antipiracy team was blocked.

CEDRO requested that the Ministry of Culture and Sports restore the intellectual property rights of the page. The link provided links to pirated books, newspapers, and magazines, but without authorisation, to allow the download of large numbers of text works.

After confirming that the page was infringing intellectual property rights, Section 2 began the process to protect the rights. It started on March 29, 2022 and culminated in the May 26 judicial resolution. This ordered the suspension of the information society service caused by the page denounced and the blocking of the website.

These illegal practices directly impact the publishers and authors of books, newspapers and magazines, as well as sheet music. Our goal is to make the internet a safe space for publishers and authors. Corrales adds, "We work to make written cultural sustainable."

"Spanish Internet access providers have to block access to any domain the person in charge might use or redirect to as a result of the resolution. Also, all proxy websites that act as intermediaries for the previous one. They may be subject to the sanctions provided by the Information Society Services Law." CEDRO stated in a statement that they could face sanctions if they do not comply. The CEDRO currently has 30,691 journalists, translators and writers in our country.
