Pirate Sites Will Be Blocked in Australia

ISPs in Australia have been ordered to block popular pirate sites, including The Pirate Bay. ISPs will be required to inform subscribers via a redirect or landing page that the content they are trying to view is blocked.

Following a case brought by several prominent rightsholders, the Australian Federal Court has ordered dozens of local Internet service providers to block The Pirate Bay, Torrentz, TorrentHound, IsoHunt, SolarMovie, plus many proxy and mirror services. The event marks the start of mass-blocking Down Under.
