The BPI and PPL are continuing to target piracy sites through High Court orders in the UK, forcing ISPs to block access to them. 17 music download sites have just been added to the blacklist, with most of them MP3 search engines. The full list, according to TorrentFreak – via an ISP – runs thus: Bursalagu, Fullsongs, Mega-Search, Mp3 Monkey, Mp3.li, Mp3Bear, MP3Boo, Mp3Clan, Mp3Olimp, MP3s.pl, Mp3soup, Mp3Truck, Musicaddict,
My Free MP3, Plixid, RnBXclusive and STAFA Band. Mega-Search is the interesting one in that list: a search engine for Kim Dotcom-founded storage service Mega, even though when it launched, Mega claimed it wouldn’t allow the kind of external search engines that made his previous site Megaupload such a piracy haven. The latest 17 sites to be blocked take the overall total to more than 100 since rightsholders adopted the High Court strategy.
