As I've said many times here, we Australians are the biggest per capita internet pirates in the world. David and I haven't watched normal TV for zonks. We simply download it all, and honestly we can't keep up with how much we download. Fuck Murdoch and his crappy pay TV. Being pensioners $35 a month unlimited ADSL downloads is very cheap entertainment. You can download just about anything as long as the torrent is healthy.
But now Australian courts have come up with the lame idea to block said download sites. I mean seriously, how dumb can they get? For a start if you're a downloader you'll have a VPN which pretends you're in another country. So how the fuckin hell could they block you accessing torrent sites even if they're blocked in Australia? Just moronic.
The Federal Court this morning ordered Australia’s biggest Internet service providers (ISPs) to block 58 individual pirate sites and more than 200 different domains and IP addresses.Even if you don't have a VPN, you can go here to this site which has a whole bunch of torrent site links just for people who their country has blocked those sites.
The orders were handed down in response to separate applications for injunction brought by Village Roadshow and pay TV provider Foxtel, with Optus, Telstra, TPG and Vocus ordered to implement new website blocks.
Subsidiaries of the four will also be affected by the injunction, including well-known ISPs such as iiNet, Internode and Dodo. Computer World
Fuck you Murdoch.
