Court orders Internet Service Providers and Search Engines to excise Sci-Hub

Sci-Hub, which is repeatedly referred to as the “Pirate Bay of Science” has been providing unlawful free access to millions of paywalled scientific papers. The American Chemical Society (ACS), a leading source of academic publications in the field of chemistry, has won a lawsuit which it had filed in June against this website with regards to copyright infringement, trademark counterfeiting and trademark infringement. Sci-Hub representatives have failed to attend court and are liable to pay $4.8 million in damages to ACS.
