Foxtel obtains ‘rolling’ injunction to block pirate sites (AU)

Foxtel will be able to better target new proxy and mirror sites that provide access to certain online locations associated with copyright infringement under Federal Court orders handed down today.

The pay TV company was granted a site-blocking injunction under provisions of Australia’s Copyright Act that target overseas-hosted sites engaging in or facilitating piracy.

The provisions under Section 115a of the act have been employed multiple times by Foxtel and other entertainment companies to obtain injunctions compelling major Internet service providers to take steps to block their broadband subscribers from accessing hundreds of websites.

The most recent application by Foxtel targeted more than a dozen sites, including for the first time dedicated web proxy sites offering access to other online services, many of which are already blocked by court order.
