Hollywood film studios have won a court case in Britain blocking access to a website accused of flagrant infringement of copyright.
Justice Richard Arnold announced Thursday that he would issue an order which would compel BT, the country's largest Internet service provider, to block access to the Newzbin2 website.
The order was sought by six studios including Twentieth Century Fox, Paramount Pictures Corporation and Disney Enterprises. They were supported by recorded music, video gaming and publishing organizations.
The judge noted that the studios considered this to be a test case, and that they would now seek similar orders against other Internet service providers in the United Kingdom.
