It is currently unclear who exactly is behind this shutdown, but some of the biggest names in the film industry have set themselves the goal of ending the boom in illegal streaming. For example, 123movies.la, which had millions of users, was shut down after it caught the attention of The Alliance For Creativity and Entertainment (ACE).
ACE is backed by some of the world’s largest film studios and media companies, including Amazon, Fox, Netflix, MGM, HBO, Sky, Paramount and Disney.
This page was already blocked in May. ACE said at the time, “Online content theft is the number one threat to the global audiovisual community, harming both domestic and foreign films and businesses, threatening jobs, undermining investment, lowering government taxes and stifling creativity. ACE will continue its efforts around the world to protect the rights of its members. “
