FilesTube and TorrentReactor among 21 blocked websites in the UK

The British courts have ordered ISPs to block a further 21 websites accused to sharing illegal material.

Sites including FilesTube and TorrentReactor were among those named by the British Recording Music Industry (BPI). ISPs were ordered to block all sites on the list by October 30th.

BT and Virgin Media are among those to have already complied with the order.

The legitimacy of the claims has once again become a matter of dispute. FilesTube, for instance, doesn’t host any material itself and is in fact simply a way to search other filehosting portals for content.

"We asked the sites to stop infringing copyright, but unfortunately they did not and we were left with little choice but to apply to the Court, where the judge considered the evidence and declared that ISPs should not serve access to them," BPI chief executive Geoff Taylor stated.

Here’s the full list of sites included in the court order:
