    Critics say the government's new laws to fight online piracy won't work as it is revealed 67 per cent of the most pirated films this month are not available online to Australians legally.

    They say the laws are also designed to help the industry rather than consumers, which forces downloaders to find other ways of getting their hands of the latest content.

    Sixty-seven per cent of the most downloaded last month from torrenting sites, such as The Pirate Bay and Kickass Torrents, could not be purchased legitimately online.

    The titles included a mix of new release films and older ones, including Jurassic World, Furious 7, Avengers: The Age of Ultron and Pitch Perfect 2, according to figures collected by Torrent Freak.

    Other films popular with online pirates, including The Wolf Of Wall Street, How To Train Your Dragon 2, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and The Interview, were not available on subscription on-demand streaming platforms Netflix and Presto.

    It comes as the government ramped up its anti-piracy approach, by passing a site-blocking law through parliament last week.
    The de facto internet filter would give copyright holders - such as film studios and record labels - the power to apply to the Federal Court to have websites that make piracy possible blocked by all Australian internet providers.

    Critics of the law say blocking sites is not the way to stop piracy.
    Labor MP Ed Husic was the first federal politician to speak out against the plan last week, saying it 'is tough on piracy but not on the causes of piracy,' in a speech given to the House of Representatives.
    'For years consumers of content have been forced to accept content later than overseas consumers at higher prices,' Mr Husic said.

    'It's a business model that helped prop up profits of rights holders, and consumers have been cynically forced to accept a business model that simply fleeces them.

    'What this bill does is get government to help business to keep fleecing consumers or to support that type of ethos.'
    Greens Senator Scott Ludlam also attacked the legislation, calling it 'lazy and dangerous'.

    'There are a variety of ways people will navigate around site blocking regimes, and such an aggressive approach does nothing to address the underlying factors, such as a lack of content accessability, that is the primary driver of copyright infringement,' Mr Ludlam told Daily Mail Australia.

    'I think there’s absolutely an appetite for Australian movies, games, music and TV – but we’ve lagged well behind international markets when it comes to distribution of content in timely and cost effective manner.
    'The take-up of Netflix has been unprecedented and services like ABC’s iView are increasingly popular, showing a strong community appetite for content.

    'Just deliver content in a timely and affordable manner, and piracy collapses.'

    Despite the government's best efforts, it is unlikely its controversial blocking bill will be successful in stopping piracy.
    A similar policy was implemented in the UK in 2011, however most users were able to find ways to get around it by using proxy websites that were not blocked.
