This will be pointless as all major websites associated with piracy aren't hosted in Australia and Australian ISP's can't do anything to take down a foreign website which hosts pirated material. Best they can do is filter them, but many other countries have already done this and it is easily circumvented via a proxy or proxy site.

 

I don't think its possible to stop piracy anymore, they could probably sway people away from it by releasing content same time as other places in the world or creating a digital distribution system which includes movies in the theaters because some people basically have cinemas in their own homes these days and want the convenience of being able to pause, play, fast-forward and rewind movies. Or even be able to buy and drink/eat whatever they want during that movie.. Or if they are busy or have a job which involves on-call work be able to pause the movie, take a phone-call and after either continue the movie or get some work done and continue it later.

exactly. Movies are still making millions and setting records. What's killing the movie industry are over-budgeted movies with overpaid actors.

 

and, rhetorically, why do these governments think media piracy is the same as terrorism? how DARE you! you STOLE a movie that would otherwise have cost $10! stealing movies is abortion!!
