UK ISPs ordered to block more pirate websites by High Court

Tom Pakinkis

BT, Sky, Virgin Media, O2, EE and TalkTalk have been ordered by the High Court to implement another round of pirate website blocks.

The UK ISPs have been ordered to put barriers up against YIFY-Torrents, PrimeWire, Vodly, WatchFreeMovies and Project Free TV.

While the latest blocks target sites providing access to copyright-infringing TV and film content, the High Court requirement is the latest in a growing line of orders, with music pirate sites having been aimed at in the past.
