Pay TV company Foxtel is preparing to launch a legal case "in the coming months" to have piracy-related websites like The Pirate Bay blocked from access in Australia.
The company has told the ABC it is currently receiving legal advice on "how best to put the legislation into effect" and expects to do so soon.
But legal experts and internet user groups are surprised they have not yet seen a Federal Court site-blocking case, and that it may be several more months before it happens.
