Spanish legislation has become very harsh against pages that provide access to content protected by copyright, and it seems that now some operators go beyond what the law requires. Today we fear that Vodafone could be blocking the exvagos.tv domain without a court order, which is bad news for a website that is very popular among Spanish Internet users.
A week ago we received the news that Exvagos was blocked by court order, and the operators complied with the measure. However, the page was moved to the new vagos domain. TV. Basically it is a way of circumventing the law. But, as the current system works, everything seemed to indicate that the page would work normally for a while, at least until a judge made a new petition.
The truth is that the domain change trick has already been used in cases such as Rojadirecta. However, Vodafone users are complaining that they cannot access exvagos.tv, and this additional blocking does not appear to have anything to do with a new order judicial. We don't know what is happening, but it is feared that Vodafone has acted on its own in this case.
For Vodafone to block exvagos.tv on its own would be controversial behavior. It is doubtful that anyone would take legal action if it were confirmed, as it is difficult to face such a giant. In addition, it can also be interpreted that Vodafone acts so that the law is complied with more scrupulously than Justice itself, so the issue is quite complex.
Exvagos is in serious trouble
From Exvagos they indicated at the time that the content they share can be found on many pages, and they accuse the Government of acting for ideological motivations. Although it is very well that they defend what they consider correct, it is not at all clear what will happen after the trick of the change of domain. Series.ly administrators were already arrested at the time, so we cannot rule out that something similar happened in this case.
So Vodafone could be blocking the exvagos.tv domain without a court order For now we have no official statements from either party, and the case has become quite complicated. What is clear is that this popular online community is in trouble, and it is not clear to us that it will overcome it, despite its obvious efforts.
What do you think of this topic? Do you think it is correct that Vodafone blocks exvagos.tv despite the fact that there is no court order against that specific domain?
