More Torrent Sites Blocked In The UK

Its getting a bit like the wild west in the UK atm  :ugly:

The High Court has ordered the UK's major internet service providers to block three websites offering links to pirated material. The ISPs must stop their users from accessing Kickass Torrents, H33T and Fenopy.

Music industry group the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) said the sites infringed copyright on a "significant scale". Opponents have argued that blocking sites in this way was ineffective.
The block follows a similar ruling last year involving The Pirate Bay, a much larger site founded in Sweden.

With the fat-cat media lobby group the BPI going to court every few weeks to block sites and simple proxy's being used to bypass such lamery I predict a move to DHT based resource locating, what will they do at that stage when they have pushed the game too far the other way ?  Whine and complain I expect as they usually do.

I have yet to hear of anyone who actually knows what content on any of these sites belongs to any of the big media groups, is it the listing or the torrrent or magnet files ?  It seems misleading the courts is legitimate these days.
