Village Roadshow has begun legal proceedings to block customers of Australia’s largest ISPs from accessing 41 websites that the company says are associated with online piracy.

Online copyright infringement has declined in Australia according to a new government-backed study.
Lawyers representing a group music labels and telcos Optus, Telstra and TPG and their subsidiaries, as well Foxtel in its capacity as an ISP, returned to the Federal Court today for a hearing on the third application for website blocking based on changes made last year to the Copyright Act.
An application for a Federal Court injunction that will compel Telstra, Optus, TPG and Foxtel’s broadband arm to block customer access to Kickass Torrents will proceed for now despite the file-sharing site’s domains being seized and its alleged operator arrested.
A group of music labels and licensing organisation APRA AMCOS are seeking a more limited form of website blocking than Foxtel and Village Roadshow in their efforts to curb piracy.
