BT ordered to block piracy site

I haven't seen this posted here and I thought it might interest some of you guys. It relates to the film industry rather than music but it does seem to be an interesting development and arguably could set a valuable precedent (within the UK at least) for rights holders.

BT ordered to block piracy site - Crime, UK - The Independent

"Hollywood film giants battling against online piracy today won a test case action in the High Court against the UK's biggest internet service provider.

They had urged a judge in London to grant an order which would force BT to cut off or impede customers' access to a website accused of "flagrant" copyright infringement."
