UPDATE 1-Hollywood wins UK piracy victory against BT

(Reuters) - Major Hollywood studios won a test case against Britain's largest internet provider in the High Court on Thursday in their fight against online piracy, the Press Association reported.

The judge said he would impose an order to restrict BT customers' access to a site that aggregates pirated material following the legal action taken by the Motion Picture Association of America.

The victory for studios including Paramount Pictures (VIAb.N) and Disney Enterprises is believed to be the first case in the UK in which an internet provider has been forced to block access to a website under the 1988 Copyright, Design and Patents Act.
