The Pirate Bay may be blocked in the UK at an ISP level nowadays, but music industry body the BPI isn’t stopping there. The BBC reports that the BPI has asked ISPs to block three more piracy sites: Fenopy, H33t and Kickass Torrents. “Like The Pirate Bay, these websites are profiting illegally from distributing music that isn’t theirs, without permission and without paying a penny to the musicians, writers and producers who created it,” a BPI spokesperson tells BBC News. However, the BPI’s reported desire to see these sites blocked by Christmas may be stymied by the ISPs, who say they will only act once a court order is in place forcing them to. BT, Sky, Virgin Media, O2, EE and TalkTalk have all been asked to block the sites.
