Major labels seek Australian ISP blocks of KickassTorrents

The Australian arms of the three major labels have teamed up with collecting society APRA AMCOS to file a court order to force local ISPs to block access to filesharing site KickassTorrents.

They’re using Section 115A, legislation that was passed in Australia last year to make ISP-level blocks possible, following the model set by the UK and its High Court. Now the legislation is being put into practice.
