Small ISP threatened with Federal Court case unless it voluntarily blocks access to website

A small Australian ISP has received a demand that it block access to an overseas website or face legal action in the Federal Court.

If the case goes ahead, it would be the first time Australia's site-blocking laws would be used and tested in court.

Law firm Moray and Agnew, acting for construction firm Simonds Homes, sent the legal demand last week, giving the ISP seven days to block the website.

The website is CHM Constructions (, which Moray and Agnew said was "infringing on Simonds' rights".
