The MPAA can and will hunt pirates down wherever they are, it seems. According to TorrentFreak, the association sued three popcorntime.io developers in Canada earlier in October, accusing them of "various copyright infringing acts." Since then, it has successfully obtained an injunction, which ordered the website’s shutdown. If you’ve never heard of the service before, it’s a website that streams pirated movies, which even works with Chromecasts and AirPlay-enabled devices. It’s not the only Popcorn Time version available on the internet, but it’s the most popular fork of the original app that also shuttered because of the MPAA back in 2014.
