Argentina’s Cuevana Sued for Piracy in Uruguay

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguay’s Anti-Piracy Association has sued Cuevana, an Argentine Web site that allows users to watch television series and movies for free, to prevent access to its content in Uruguay.

“The rest of the world can do whatever they think is necessary, but in Uruguay it shouldn’t be accessible,” the association’s president, Fernando Couto, told EFE. “It is a matter of territoriality.”

The lawsuit targeting Cuevana, the first in Uruguay against a foreign Web site, has already been accepted by a Montevideo court, which set a hearing on Nov. 13.

“There is a presumption of the site’s illegitimacy, since downloading a movie is already a presumptive illegitimate action,” Couto said.

Cuevana, established in 2009, lets users watch content online by streaming it without the need for a download, and it has become one of the most visited and popular sites in Argentina and neighboring countries.
