Taiwan law passed to make it illegal to sell preloaded box like Ubox 安博盒子 and 千寻盒子.

This is similar to the upcoming IP protection law proposal in Singapore.

The new law makes it illegal to upload apps with illegal audio video links on-line, to help others download such apps, or to sell TV boxes containing such apps.

The law does not target consumers buying the box. Still consumers may be affected because the apps may not work if the apps are blocked.
On a separate note, Singapore high court has ordered ISPs to block pirate sites showing EPL Games.

The Singapore High Court last week granted an order sought by the London-based Football Association Premier League (FA), for nine key Internet service providers (ISPs) to block access by fans to the unauthorised websites.
