The thing is, to maintain their log of what you consented to they have to submit some data, and I don't particularly want that recorded either

Rumble.com claims to "MANAGE YOUR PROFESSIONAL, SOCIAL AND VIRAL VIDEOS ON RUMBLE"

But, these calls don't seem to result in any kind of video/player relevant to the content being embedded. So all that's happening is the source page (in this case, ruinmyweek.com) is sending the current URL to a 3rd party - which seems to line up with the fact they also offer analytics services

Blocking *.unequalbrake.com

Unequalbrake *claims* to be a DMCA blocking tool. However, it appears to actually be used to serve adblock detection scripts.

Even were that not the case, Copyright policing is a task for the copyright holders, and not something that should result in javascript being pushed into my browser (why would a copyright violating site willingly serve that JS anyway?)

1337x.to have a list of their domains here - http://1337x.to/about

Block JS on all of them, including the new cgi-cdn path they've added at some point.

They also use inline scripts for ads, so if you're using Ublock it's recommended to block these too, but you'll also then need to use a tampermonkey script to override their clickjack protection and make the page display:

// ==UserScript==
// @name New Userscript
// @namespace http://tampermonkey.net/
// @version 0.1
// @description try to take over the world!
// @author You
// @match http://1337x.to/*
// @grant none
// ==/UserScript==

(function() {
'use strict';
var antiClickjack = document.getElementById("antiClickjack");
antiClickjack.parentNode.removeChild(antiClickjack);
})();

Or, you know, just pay for your content at a legitimate source ;)
