The UK High Court has granted The Publishers Association a blocking order against the main UK ISPs. The order applies to 7 websites which have been found to contain substantial amounts of infringing content. The ISPs will be required to block customer access to these sites, within 10 days.
The sites, all based overseas, have been infringing copyright on a massive scale. Investigations undertaken by The PA found that over 80% of the material available on the sites (and in some cases over 90%) infringes copyright.
