Last week, we brought you the news that Village Roadshow was seeking to add 40 more sites to Australia's anti-piracy block list. ISPs will now need to ban customers from accessing popular torrent and movie streaming sites that include ExtraTorrent, Demonoid, Torrent Downloads, TorrentProject, YTS, 123Movies, and Icefilms. Here is the full list of banned websites (and how to bypass the blocks).
Following the successful blocking (on paper at least) of The Pirate Bay, Torrentz, TorrentHound, IsoHunt and SolarMovies, Village Roadshow is stepping up its attack on copyright infringers. The latest hit list submitted to the courts contains dozens of domains belonging to some of the most popular torrent, streaming, and direct download sites on the internet.
Village Roadshow's application to the courts is essentially a repeat of the previous one, but with new domain names. Once again, the movie company is requesting ISPs including Telstra, Optus, Vocus, TPG and their subsidiaries to implement the blocks.
Here's the full list of blocked sites as reported by TorrentFreak:
- Torrent Downloads
- Yify Torrent
As we've mentioned in the past, torrenting itself is completely legal and it's not all that difficult to circumvent ISP blocking of torrent websites. Click here to find out how to circumvent the blocks.
