[Ernesto for TorrentFreak. Link (CC-BY-NC)] Following two new court orders issued today, Australian Internet providers must block dozens of additional pirate sites. The new blockades were requested by Foxtel and Village Roadshow, and cover many of the most used pirate sources, including Gomovies, RARBG, 1337x and EZTV. Creative Content Australia warns that people who bypass the blocks could easily run into malware, viruses and other nastiness.
Rather than taking site operators to court, copyright holders increasingly demand that Internet providers should block access to ‘pirate’ domains.
As a result, courts all around the world have ordered ISPs to block subscriber access to various pirate sites.
