The co-founder of one of the world's most popular file-sharing websites says the Government's proposed legislation to block overseas web services that breach copyright will not deter illegal downloading.
The amendment will allow rights holders to apply to the Federal Court for an order which would force Australian internet service providers to block access to offending sites.
The Copyright Amendment (Online Infringement) Bill has received bipartisan support in Parliament and a vote is expected next week.
