UK ISPs Quietly Block More Torrent Site Proxies

Several UK Internet providers have quietly added a list of new domains to their secretive anti-piracy blocklists. TorrentFreak was able to confirm that several popular torrent site proxies were added over the past weekend. However, the blocked domains have been quickly replaced by new ones, continuing the cat-and-mouse game that never seems to end.
Following a series of High Court orders, six UK ISPs are required to block subscriber access to several of the world's largest torrent sites.
The blocks are somewhat effective, at least in preventing subscribers from accessing the domains directly. However, that doesn't mean that the sites are completely inaccessible.
