I totally didn't see this coming. Did you? I thought for sure that blocking pirate sites would work. I guess it's back to the drawing board.

Telstra has become the very first Australian ISP to block The Pirate Bay, a move designed to crack down on piracy in the country. However, the blocking method chosen by the ISP is the most basic option permitted under the Federal Court's order. As a result, it's been defeated in seconds.
