Google, Microsoft and Yahoo have been legally ordered to remove 16 video piracy websites from their French sites. The domains in question are variations of video streaming websites Allostreaming, Fifostreaming and Dpstream. The judgement potentially sets a precedent not only for ISPs and search engines to cooperate with copyright holders, but to also pay for the cost of any action brought against them. Google, Microsoft and Yahoo have been given two weeks to comply with the High Court's ruling, in a case that could have global consequences.
YouTube now has a dedicated app for the Nintendo 3DS (unlike the PS4) and gamers can access their accounts and search the site for videos via their game consoles. No support for 3D video though and no word as to when that's coming. As it's been a very long weekend, welcome to the rest of the news and gossip from videoland since Thanksgiving.
