ExtraTorrent To Be Blocked in Australia

ExtraTorrent To Be Blocked in Australia

Added: Thursday, November 19th, 2015
Category: Recent Headlines Involving File Sharing > Ridiculous Criminal Trials
Tags:Censorship, VPN, BitTorrent, Law, extratorrent, extratorrent.cc, Australia
A some time ago, a controversial anti-piracy website-blocking legislation (pdf) passed in Australian Senate. The site-blocking law allows copyright holders to receive court orders restricting Australians’ access to overseas websites linked to copyright infringement or piracy.

Once the bill passed into law, file sharing and torrent sites like ExtraTorrent, Pirate Bay and other could be blocked to Australians by the country’s internet service providers.

The legislation’s passing means a dark day for the Internet in Australia – according to the words of Dr. Matthew Rimmer, an associate professor at the ANU College of Law. He pointed out that websites that don’t intend to host copyright-infringement content like Mega and Dropbox, could be mistakenly blocked.

It was originally envisaged that the legislation would take effect on 1 December. However, the start of the scheme has been delayed and it is now expected on 1 December - accodring to The Sydney Morning Herald


Many Australian users think that the passed law is very controversial.

“The best way to fight piracy in Australia would be to give us access to the streaming content we want. The limited selection available to us does not meet the demand for the service, so people look for other ways to get what they want”, - the most popular opinion among Australian Internet users right now.

Senator Scott Ludlam noticed: “Does anyone seriously believe that this scheme won't be expanded in the future to cover more categories of content? Of course it will. It has scope creep absolutely built into it. It is lazy, and it is dangerous," he said.”

Nevertheless, VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) used by Australian internet users to hide their location to access foreign sites, will not be affected. With VPN for torrenting, Australian users are still able to replace IP address with IP address of VPN server located in another country or region. This trick allows users to hide online identity on the internet, overcome online censorship and access any file sharing website in Australia without any risk.

Recently, a part of ExtraTorrent community launched a VPN called by Trust.Zone VPN for safe torrenting. This is a bit experimental project. But it cares about safety of ET members and every downloader. Trust.Zone VPN prevents your ISP from sending Copyright Infringement Notices by hiding your real location and your real IP address.

Trust.Zone VPN servers are tuned to provide ExtraTorrent members with the fastest speed to access ExtraTorrent website in Austrtalia. ExtraTorrent recommends joining VPN services for Australian users as soon as possile. A new anti-piracy code for Australian will be activated on December,1

No avatarlets go back in time to 2008. Beijing Olympics. The Western World carried on like anything, when they found out China had internet censorship, and limited their citizens access to outside content. The had headlines in the media were filled with broken information about how it would effect the airing off the Olympics, and the reporters or athletes who would in turn be in Beijing reporting or competing in/on the events, and their ability, or more so the hyped up inability, to get their information/stories/emails to families, out of the country for newspapers, t.v networks, and for support from families. China sort of caved into world wide media pressure, releasing some of the restrictions, and in turn, opening Chinese people up to a world wide web that had more available.
Fast forward to 2015, the shoe fits, so why not wear it? Liberal government had a hard choice to make, wikileaks and our own intelligence agencies information being leaked, caused quite a bit of a stir(Indonesian president being phone tapped), and the rising of the extremists/religious zealots in the middle east. Our own citizens have openly left and joined both sides of the battle, thus we have a conundrum occurring in Australia where most people have free access to 'ANY' content they choose.
Not only priated T.V, Movies or music,or even the propoganda from rebel Groups, but weapon specifications, chemical compounds, all the way through to literally nuclear physics.
Anyone can read and learn, I was taught to learn by Trial and Error, and eventually someone is going to make something that they shouldn't, or cause a major problem ( WIKILEAKS). Full battle tactics are on wiki concerning anything from siege warfare, down to urban warfare. Hell even Saddam's Chemical warfare exploits are down for everyone to see and learn from...(or worse mimic).
Too bad we can't have our cake and eat it. No use blaming companies for slow content release, or blaming people for pirating. Australia have always been left behind the rest of the world with releases or even fair prices, so why think it will change now. Guess mobile internet tethered from a phone that automatically encrypts data, will be the safest way to surf the net in Australia in the near future.

Crash1 avatarSince the law applies only to a single ISP at a time (and only to SPECIFIC INTERNATIONAL addresses), that means the ISP is doing the filtering. And the ONLY way they can do that effectively is by DNS blocking.

The SIMPLE, ZERO COST, solution to this is just to NOT use your ISP's DNS server. Just change your Modem's Primary DNS setting to 8.8. 8.8 (Google's DNS server) and the Secondard to either 8.8. 4.4 (google's backup) or 208.67. 222.222 (OpenDNS) and you shouldn't have to worry about these issues. (Only sign up to a VPN when you HAVE TO, not because of all the scare-mongering.)

PS. I wonder if anybody's noticed that the word 'International' in the legislation means that any AUSTRALIAN based VPN service is EXEMPT from this law.

Crash1 avatarAs for COZZA666's comment about information available on the INTERNET (re Nuclear Physics, and Chemical compounds), pretty much ANY year 12 physics student could design, AND BUILD, a nuclear bomb fairly easily ... However, obtaining the fissionable material would be a nigh-on impossible. And as for Dangerous Chemical Formulas ... by year 11 & 12 Chemistry books had all KINDS of wonderful formulas in the back ... WITH INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE THEM. And THAT was 28 YEARS ago. (they included Napalm, Nitroglycerine, Agent Orange, and formulas only for several NERVE agents [no instructions]. I only remember the first 2 because the chemicals are easy to acquire, and easy to mix. {Nitro just isn't worth the danger though, it explodes too easily.})

And ALSO as any chemistry student could tell you, there are a LOT of dangerous compounds IN YOUR OWN HOUSE. Just spill some drain cleaner into bleach if you don't believe me (Chlorine Gas), or Ammonia and Iodine for Ammonia Tri-Iodide (High Explosive), Potassium permanganate and Petrol (BOOM!), and a hundred OTHER potentially hazardous combinations just sitting in your house RIGHT NOW ... Who NEEDS Sadam's chemical compounds? Your HOUSE is dangerous enough!!

ReservoirDogs avatar#6 kilowatt - This site does not exploit the fear or whatever, this site try just to survive and protect it's members by proposing a VPN where they are affiliated with, to cover the coast of servers they rent and to allow members to connect to ET from countries that countries block ET. That's all !
You forget that this site is 100% free, but for the owner it have a huge coast to run it, and i do not even speak about the "Legal" coast they can face

No avatarCrash1 will slow you down, for a few sites a VPN or one of the proxies to extratorrent would be a better solution. I intend to wait to see what happensI before I do anything.

Another possibility which I have been told is good but I never used it is DNSCrypt finally you may want to try ChrisPC DNS Switch

analogkid6103 avatarIt's always the same and in every level of the political machine,they bring in a new law and specify what its for.
Time goes by...
Perfect example: California got wild and crazy about hardened criminals, and with the unfortunate events that just happened to occur with perfect timing they passed a so called 3 strikes law to be applied to Horrible criminals.
Wonderful idea lets lock up all the monsters and evil.
Time goes by... What did they do? petty theft with a prior.
25 to life for em. Yeah we all should feel real safe and protected, but who will protect us from them and that kind of abuse.
No elected anybody can say anything about reforming any passed in law ,not if he wants to keep his job. So on it goes....it aint real and can't happen until the gavel drops.
Game over.
Over the top? Im being an alarmist? nah.
Just wait and see.
Time goes by...
They have monetized all the content and they are counting it up at full retail value.
What do you thinks gonna happen?

Crash1 avatar@Embolism ... did you bother to READ the legislation?? Obviously NOT from your comment! No Aussie organisation can "arbitrarily take down sites or block other countries connections". An organisation can petition the FEDERAL COURT for a SINGLE ISP to block a SINGLE site ... it's NOT a blanket restriction, and the court can also impose a TIME LIMIT on the restriction if they are unsure. For an organisation to get the Fad Court to completely block a single international site would require petitions against about 12 ISP's. THAT means 12 COURT CASES (and the costs involved), and if the site has multiple addresses they'll need separate court cases for EACH address.

I somehow don't think there will be TOO many petitions, as the time required and the costs will quickly become prohibitive, and ISP blocks are too easy to bypass. (DNS blocking is the ONLY way an ISP could effectively block a single address without involving third-party software that would slow down all connections too much.)

EZeeMunny avatarAs long as ET itself stays out of trouble there is no real way to prevent us from enjoying all the great TV one way or another. Be it VPN or just a free Proxy the access to this and other sites represents the best thing about the Internet, the free exchange of ideas copyrighted or not. My Gran used to tell me that the best things in life are free and I laughed but now, well I guess she was right after all. If this attempt to put padlocks on the internet works, today it is copyright, tomorrow it will be radical politics and the day after it will be your opinions and your freedom to say what you like. You would be naïve to believe anything less.

~21million occasional Tax Paying free range prisoners led by a Government that has set up an extra bench to join the 2 opposing sides of Parliment. If we don't like the laws that get passed , we have & will always find a way around them , its in our nature & part of our heritage.

CCC avatarI really try to avoid ranting but this has me in a bad mood, so sorry in advance. I RAN/OWNED as an admin/mod many of the free TV sites. We went underground after the BIG bust on them. Never has one been found. They are still out there.

I know how to run sites. The first thing is to fund and operate it. That takes dedicated peeps. It is what I see here. They work hard to give you this site. They are struggling to keep it up, so if they are pushing a VPN then give them the chance to do it and maybe try it, it works fine for me. OTHERWISE YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO NOT LOG IN HERE. You are getting the torrents presented in a great format for free.

Embolism avatar@13 Crash, yes I have read the post and I live in England where it is and has been done for the last couple of years already and most if not all have been blocked in the UK and not just Torrent sites,here they use every type of BS threat from paedophiles to anti-terrorism to block and limit access to whatever they do not like despite European laws England follows America stupidly and blindly as has been proven,I personally use a free vpn from zenmate and as my post here proves it works.It is right that our laws differ and I do not know how it works under a federal government but can say hand on heart when they want to shut you down they will and can, excuses are not required with court documents as they use the gracie card and say suspected terrorism or paedophilia and no court will deny them or go against them,As far as creating a working bomb most things in the household kitchen or garden shed can be weaponised (although not nuclear)and a very early example is the terrorist cookbook which has been around for over a decade so making TNT is quite possible just ask the IRA.

Embolism avatarIt must be said if any were to read the previous post on the Ban in Australia my post at 10 will be self evident,but for those who speak before engaging brain here is a quote from that post:
"This Bill won't just block online piracy sites; it could allow companies to prevent Australian access to competitor websites in other countries" - according to Australian consumer advocacy group Choice. Australian law is currently unclear regarding the legality of using a VPN to access a legitimate service, like the video-streaming site Hulu which is blocked in Australia.I think it might now be clearer in regards my post@ 10.

COMPRENDeDEFUNCT avatarok guys, et can be blocked in the UK , in fact it mostly is by all major ISP's. i use firefox and the free addon called Anonymox, its simple to use, turn it on go to ET and boom your in!, then open Anonymox again add set ET as an exception, then turn off anonymox, the next time you click your ET bookmark, ET will open with Anonymox, when you close the tab Anonymox stops again, so it doesnt slow your regular browsing, this method can be applied for all your blocked sites and i have used it since blocking started, it 2 seconds to get back on TPB! oh yeah there is a little pop up now and then with an advert but i havent seen it much recently ,i think they may have stopped it. but its free and reliable.

freedom in this country is eroding to nanny government ...
we have a situation here where politicians squander money and deceitfully obtain money such as allowances with which they purchase houses etc and only the odd one gets caught out...even then they do not get fined or jailed , they get a smack on the wrist or maybe booted from parliament after the damage is done.......

No avatar@brianic2012

From your post I'm not sure why you are even here, and even more confused by your avatar Vs pro legal stance.

No matter who owns the VPN service, the service is a legal and legitimate one and any organisation or government would be just wasting their own or taxpayers money to fight it in court. They would have to change a countries laws to facilitate this and that would impose on civil liberties and privacy laws. It would be a decision that would pretty much determine their loss at the next election.

I have Netflix and I have foxtel but there are still gaps in the market which is why this practice still exists.

I'll give you two examples of the uselessness of Foxtel and our free to air networks in Australia that pushes people to find content from other avenues. And this is only just a couple of examples of how inept the programmers of content in Australia are.

1. Foxtel: Currently Foxtel are running Season 3 of Strike Back when in fact the season they are running as Season 3 is actually Season 4.

2. Channel 10: This network ran Season 1 of Scorpion in early 2015 for a total of 10 episodes. They started Season 2 in late September 2015. The only problem is that Season 1 was actually 22 episodes from memory and the season 2 they are running is actually the remainder of Season 1. The most ridiculous thing is that they premiered their Season 2 in conjunction with the US (actual) Season 2, so if anyone goes online to IMDB etc and looks up Season 2 they get a completely different episode list and explanation.

Australians are short changed on content that doesn't match up with the rest of the world which is run by lazy programming and strategy, and as for seeing you in court, fat chance buddy. The new Australian laws are designed to appease the copyright holders giving them the ability to take action but if you read closely to facilitate this action would be a highly expensive proposition with no guarantees. The example of the recent Dallas Buyers Club CH attempting to send speculative invoices to Australians is an example with the Federal Court of Australia requesting they approve every separate invoice sent to any Australian citizen. This would have to be done with a separate court filing for each and every invoice - 4500+ in total. It shut them up pretty quickly.

No avatarI know one thing this will do; get rid of any lamers who don't know how to use a computer! The warez and pirate scene has been full of losers loading dud movies and passworded files that can't be opened since it became public knowledge. At least this will now minimise my continual downloading of crap and waste of time there!

I look at it from a different perspective in that I think it will ultimately be beneficial to me.

What Australia is attempting to do won't stop it one bit and all it will do is go back underground and onto almost-forgotten networks again (like IRC, newsgroups, etc.) that lamers without a real clue about computers won't know how to access.

Downloading pirate software and movies was never supposed to be so simple nor public.

The reality is that the Australian Government is just trying to do their job in at least being seen to attempt to protect people's copyrights.

As dingoTV says, there are gaps in the market and the present providers are too far behind with their offerings.

I'm Australian too, by the way.

If there was a monthly services that provided access to all the LATEST software, television and movies at various flat-rates for different subscriptions I'd certainly be into that, though unfortunately at present such a beast doesn't exist yet, and may never; it's simply easier to come to places like ET because they offer the availability to content, much like YIFY that was closed down recently. I'm talking about a step further than just Netflix for anyone that will simply throw that up as an answer.

...and yes, it's all about the money. Foxtel, Telstra, ISPs, etc. they're all about the money and it's the only reason they want these kinds of sites closed down, though with that being said, they're also cutting their own throats in the equation. They need to be seen to be attempting to do the right thing from a political sense, though ultimately it's through piracy that they're actually making money themselves...

How so, you ask? Well, will anyone still be needing that 500GB of bandwidth per month they're paying some ridiculous price for, if they lose the ability to download movies or TV series? Not likely...

ISPs and copyright holders will end up shooting themselves in the foot if they petition too much for censorship; the vast majority of customers will downsize their plans to a 5th of the plan they're presently on. Why pay $120 per month for 500GB download when you only need 100GB because you can no longer download what you want.

It's not up to the government to control what a user wants to use the internet for.

Half of this shit was invented when ISPs were guys in garages with 9600 and 14.4K modems dialling in BBSes and as soon as the government got involved in attempting to regulate and seek revenue from selling wholesale internet to ISPs (keeping in mind that this was all built with our tax-payer dollars) when everything switched to ADSL and Cable internet, that was when control of our own destinies was lost in terms of being able to have a say what we wanted to do with the internet.

An example, the NBN that is/was being built in Australia from tax-payer dollars. These services were build by the Australia government yet are then on-sold to a public company (Telstra) with the Government being one of their largest shareholders and other providers who get the right to resell what we originally paid for from our tax dollars to the people who already paid for it through paying their taxes to begin with! Sounds like a good plan to me too! Paying double for something we'd already paid for!

In the old days of BBSes there weren't 000's of people on the BBSes (only those people the vast majority of you "cool people" termed "computer geeks", they hosted a few hundred people and you had to be invited to the warez sites, they weren't publicly advertised and you had to know a friend of a friend who could get you in.

I think the only solution is for it to all go underground again, which will defray the incessant arguments about piracy being right and that it should be public.

Ultimately it's someone else's work that we're getting for free, so is it really a good idea to continually rub the fact that we're taking work they should be making money from in the copyright holder's faces?

Why not put it back to the way it was. Don't talk about it unless you know someone well and think you can trust them, make sites invite only and let sleeping dogs lie.

It's like all of the TVs that now support DivX, Xvid, MKV formats. They were all invented for piracy! Why do the TVs support these formats? Should Samsung, LG, Sony, etc. all be charged for "Aiding and abetting piracy"? Yeah, right. That will go far!

It's all hypocritical bullshit at the end of the day.

The TV manufacturers and ISPs are similar to arms dealers selling guns and saying, "we only sell the guns, we don't go and kill people". If the guns weren't available, people would have to find alternative methods to kill each other, like with a big stick instead. If they didn't provide TVs that support what were essentially "pirate codecs" then piracy wouldn't have gotten so big in the first place.

If the pirate industry goes underground again then copyright holders will leave the pirates alone; it's the pirates telling the copyright holders they're wrong and that content should be available to the masses for free that's pissing them off. which I'm sure you'd be if it was your work people were distributing for free.

It's when people try to make money from someone else's work or attempt to pirate on a "commercial scale" that they get pissed off.

If it's a few videos shared amongst friends in a "closed session" type of "invite-only" affair, it's all good.

Why stir up the hornet's nest if there's an alternative.

There is such a thing as discretion as well instead of "trying to be right"...

brianic2012 avatar@DingoTv ...You Totally Missed my Point ...I'm an Aussie Pirate, and have been Using VPN's For the last 18 months, and I Have not Paid any money, EVER!!

These "Commercial VPN's" are Just Out To Rip People Off...And Make Money.

When in Fact ...If Approached By any Federal Government Body,These VPN's Will Sell You Out, and Keep Your Money, Whilst Riding Off Into the Sunset.

Just Read The "Privacy Policy", and "User agreement", Of Any "Commercial VPN" ,It Will Say ....You must abide by The Laws in Your Country, and You Must Not Use Their Service For Copyright Infringement, Or File Sharing,ect.

If Caught doing so, You Can Be Banned and Details Of Your Payments Ect Will Be Handed Over to The Law.

My Point Is... Just Because You Pay For a VPN does not Mean Your safe ..in Fact Your More Liable For a Court Case ..Because Of Payments Records...

IE....Yes Your Honour, I Download 500gb a month through A VPN, But I'm Not Doing Anything Illegal Because I Pay For It!

If You Think These Vpn's Will Help You...Just Ask For A Refund!

and Yes There Is A Gap in The Market ...I Have Netflix also..The U.S Version..But I Still Download The Latest Stuff ...Much Better than Aussie Netflix.

kingmax1 avatarVPN is the solution. They might for a while hide or shut down our favorite sites. But the can't forever bury them. They can't just easily take away ET, TPB, and YTS too.. Yes YIFY is back.

chdr1 avatarblocking pirate/torrent sites wont make me buy more dvd`s or pay for foxtel /netflix its too expensive for me this is the only way i get to see the good new stuff
$30 odd for a dvd that you play once or twice and hundreds of $$ for foxtel pay tv per month that make you pay more for a new mega movie and the rest of the channels are very low quality entertainment and repeats of garbage forget that
what we do is a drop in the bucket to what these greedy companies make if the actors and artists didn't rub our noses in it with the huge displays of wealth they have ( rap is the worst for it )and make stupid demands like only blue m&m`s in the dressing room i just might feel sorry for them and stop pirating.... i put my life on the line every day that i go to work and get payed a pittance for it they get payed millions to sing or act and get drunk and treat the normal people like something you stepped in in the park ......so screw em .......

pixiii avatarWe're past the date and it hasn't affected my torrenting habit so far. As ozidaredevil said, we have a Prime Minister who does jack shit for our country, most people can't even remember his name as he's NEVER in the news for anything and is so far behind in anything cyber-related, he's like a fkn dinosaur. Australia is one of the countries in the world that would never allow our torrents to be taken away. There's always a way around things. That's what these politicians and big businesses will never realise.
