Blocked Pirate Sites Used 50 Percent Less Due to Court Orders (Sydney Morning Herald)


Pirate websites blocked by the Australian government are used 50 per cent less than a year ago after increased efforts from entertainment companies to stop illegal video sharing sites.

In the past year there has been a 25 per cent drop in overall piracy in the year and a 53 per cent drop in the use of blocked sites, the Australian Site-Blocking Efficacy Report released on Wednesday by intellectual property solutions company Incopro shows.
