The blocking is strictly reserved for French territory, it has affected many streaming sites such as Download Zone or Liberty VF and of course Papystreaming. French justice has ordered the various ISPs who are Internet service providers, such as Free, SFR or Bouygues Telecom, to block all access to these streaming sites.

What is illegal about streaming?
You can watch streaming without fear, it is not illegal, but it is also not recommended. What is illegal in the eyes of French law is the streaming site itself.
Indeed, the site is put online with content for which the owner of the site is not the owner, he does not have the copyright of the rights holders. These contents are on an external server and then made available to you online, without any authorization.
To avoid any ambiguity, it is best to go through legal streaming sites, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime or OCS. You will, of course, have to pay a monthly subscription, but you will have access to a lot of very good quality and legally owned content, because these platforms have paid the copyright.
