Australia Passes ‘Pirate’ Site Blocking Law

It looks like Australia is taking drastic measures to block access to pirate sites once and for all. You know, because that has always worked in the past. wink

A few minutes ago Australia passed controversial new legislation which allows for overseas 'pirate' sites to be blocked at the ISP level. Despite opposition from the Greens, ISPs and consumer groups, the Senate passed the bill into law with a vote of 37 in favor and 13 against. Expect The Pirate Bay to be an early target.
