The Roku ban in Mexico has been lifted.
We reported last week that the sale of Roku in Mexico had been halted by a judge based on a filing by Cablevision. Roku issued a statement to us saying they were actively working to get the ban lifted, and restating their commitment to keeping unlicensed content off of their devices.
According to an article published late yesterday by Torrent Freak, a judge in Mexico has suspended the ban. They also received comment from Roku about the ban being lifted, “Roku is pleased with today’s court decision, which paves the way for sales of Roku devices to resume in Mexico.
Piracy is a problem the industry at large is facing.
We prohibit copyright infringement of any kind on the Roku platform. We actively work to prevent third-parties from using our platform to distribute copyright infringing content. Moreover, we have been actively working with other industry stakeholders on a wide range of anti-piracy initiatives.”
