LaLiga: Court Orders Google to Wipe IPTV Smarters Pro From Play Store
A court in Spain has handed down an order that requires Google to remove popular IPTV app ‘IPTV Smarters Pro’ from the Google Play Store. Filed by top-tier football league LaLiga, the initial complaint received support from UDEV, a police unit tackling specialist and violent crime, including national and international copyright cases.
Top-tier Spanish football league LaLiga has been waging war against pirate sites and services for the past several years.
