Italy blocks 27 sites suspected of aiding file-sharing

Italian authorities have recently ordered that two dozen file-sharing websites be blocked in Italy, the largest such move since American authorities seized over 80 domain names in 2010.The blockage — which occurred at the DNS level and can be routed around — was ordered (Google Translate) by the Public Prosecutor of Rome. It appears to have been instated as the result of the alleged illegal downloading of the 2011 French film “A Monster in Paris,” which was released in Italian cinemas late last year and has since popped up on some file-sharing sites.
