EU Court To Decide If Streaming Pirated Movies Is Legal

I'm going to go with my gut instinct here and say the courts will side with the anti-piracy groups on this one.

Seeking clarification, a Dutch court has referred several streaming related questions to the EU Court of Justice. The questions relate to a case between local anti-piracy group BREIN and a seller of so-called "pirate boxes" that come pre-loaded with streaming plugins. It is currently unclear whether streaming pirated movies is permitted under EU law.
