It’s currently unclear exactly who is behind this closure, but some of the biggest names in the movie industry have been on a mission to end the boom in illegal streaming. For example, 123movies.la, which had millions of users, was closed after it caught the attention of The Alliance For Creativity and Entertainment (ACE).
ACE is backed by some of the world’s biggest film studios and media companies which include, Amazon, Fox, Netflix, MGM, HBO, Sky, Paramount and Disney.
This site was banned back in May. At the time, ACE said: “The theft of online content is the single greatest threat to the global audiovisual community, harming both local and foreign films and businesses, threatening jobs, undermining investment, reducing tax contributions to governments, and stifling creativity. ACE will continue its efforts around the world to protect the rights of its members.”
