The UK High Court has ordered BSkyB, BT, Virgin Media and three other UK broadband providers to block access to three music and movie file-sharing websites Kickass Torrents, H33T and Fenopy.

Judge Richard Arnold said  that these websites infringed 10 music companies copyrights on an industrial scale.

He granted an order to 10 record labels including EMI, Sony and Universal against six UK internet service providers requiring them to take measures to block or at least impede access by their customers to these three file-sharing websites.

"The orders are necessary and appropriate to protect the intellectual property rights of the claimants and other copyright owners." Judge said. The ISPs have been given 15 working days to block access to the sites. Each ISP will decide how to warn customers and subsequently attempt to curb alleged illegal file sharing activity.

Verizon decided to send a series of warnings to Internet users and after the fifth the alleged copyright infringer's Internet connection will be slowed significantly for up to three days.

Another uncontested case makes for an easy win for the copyright terrorist gang, what will they block next the entire web ?
