BitTorrent Sites Kickass, H33t and Fenopy Blocked by UK ISPs

UK ISPs Virgin Media, BT O2 and Be There have now blocked access to BitTorrent sites due to a high court order earlier this year. A court order earlier this year has forced UK’s largest ISP providers to block access to three BitTorrent sites in particular – Kickass, H33t and Fenopy. According to the High Court ruling, these three sites were profiting from copyright infringement that their users carried out. This is a similar court order that took down the Pirate Bay in most of the UK. Although the verdict did not state the exact start date of these blockades, TorrentFreaks reports that the  the ISPs have started censoring these sites today. Below, you can see screenshots from Be There subscribers and Virgin Media subscribers when they attempt to access the sites.
