High Court bans BitTorrent sites

The British Phonographic Industry (BPI) has succeeded in obtaining a court order requiring the UK’s major internet service providers (ISPs) to block three BitTorrent websites – Kickass Torrents, H33T and Fenopy – which allegedly offer links to pirated material.

While the BPI said the sites in question infringe copyright on a “significant scale“, others argue that blocking sites in this way is ineffective and does not deal with the issue comprehensively. Commenting, Loz Kaye, the leader of Pirate Party UK, said the BPI was “out of control” and that the “UK has now handed the power over what we see on the internet to corporate lobbyists.

Although piracy is endemic in this digital age, these Copyright Legal Documents can assist individuals and businesses in managing and protecting their copyright.
