In the eyes of at least one intellectual property academic, the passing of controversial anti-piracy website-blocking legislation in the senate on Monday night represented "a very dark day for the internet in Australia".

But for the film and TV industry, which has been battling online piracy at record levels, it was a watershed moment. Finally they could seek a remedy in the courts to block access to sites offering their content for free.

The Copyright Amendment (Online Infringement) Bill 2015, introduced into parliament by Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull in March to curb online piracy of film and TV shows, passed with the Coalition and Labor's support 37-13.

Anyone who lives in Oz would know this was all done for the Murdoch empire mate.

As soon as they started talking about this legislation i knew dam well it would be for uncle rupert.

 

Its also part of the IPA check list, very interesting read for anyone who cares to get angry at a Liberal. The LNP has already ticked a lot of things of this list hey!

Either way people will use PIA and just enable the DNS leaking protection, will iot be %100 probably not but atleast they wont be sniffing what im doing.

I use my VPN the second the PC turns on.

Stuff them and their Big Brother tactics i just cannot stand having someone watch my every move.
