Foxtel has returned to Federal Court in Sydney with a new application to block 'pirate' sites. The company is targeting several torrent indexes including ETTV and Torrents.me plus streaming sites Sockshare, WatchFreeMovies, and others. Each stand accused of providing unlawful access to TV shows including Game of Thrones. Due to streamlining, the order could be granted in just days.
Several popular YouTube accounts, including those belonging to 'MIT OpenCourseWare' and the 'Blender Foundation,' have had all their videos blocked. People who try to access the videos are informed that they are not available in their country, suggesting that YouTube's piracy filters have been triggered. It's unclear, however, who or what is to blame.
