Copyright holders make another attempt to have such online services as The Pirate Bay, Torrentz, isoHunt and SolarMovie blocked at the ISP level in Australia. However, the operator of a streaming portal SolarMovie told TorrentFreak that they always respond to copyright takedown requests and never allows sex ads, so such attention is quite surprising.
After the local legislation was amended in 2015, it was always presumed that entertainment industry would take full advantage of the legislation in another attempt to prevent Internet users from accessing pirated content.
Recently, two separate actions were started against the “piracy” sites. The first was launched by a number of movie studios against 50 Australian ISPs, which were requested to block several SolarMovie domains plus additional IPs and domains should the site begin to move around. The copyright owners have requested both DNS and IP address blocking along with “any alternative technical means” as agreed in writing with the broadband providers. If their request is satisfied, future visitors to the streaming site will be greeted with a special landing page telling them that the page has been blocked following a court order. However, should ISPs become aware that any SolarMovie URL or IP address is no longer being used for piracy, they will no longer be required to block it. Finally, if the broadband providers temporarily fail to block SolarMovie because of technical issues, they won’t be in breach of the order.
Another separate case was filed by Foxtel against 17 local ISPs, which were require to block The Pirate Bay, Torrentz, TorrentHound and IsoHunt – all of their DNS and IP addresses, as well as alternative domains, mirrors, clones and proxies.

|At the moment it's a direct appeal to the ISP's using the legislation as leverage (do it or end up it court!) ... they haven't gone through the Federal courts YET, as that will be EXPENSIVE.|
(According to the legislation BLANKET requests are not allowed. EVERY block request must target a SINGLE ISP, and a SINGLE website [don't know whether alternates and proxies are exempt, or classed as a different site] ... so 17 ISP's at 4 sites EACH will mean AT LEAST 68 SEPARATE FEDERAL COURT CASES ... as I said EXPENSIVE ... and Time consuming!)
