Back to this report... sites like ThePirateBay were already banned by AU ISP's about a year or more ago, but now they want to ban basically every torrent website on the internet.

Next thing you know VPN's will be banned as well. They are already making moves on encryption like in the UK.
I suspect this is a masquerade. This may well be a way to crack down on privacy enhancing technology under the label of anti-piracy.

I'm not sure if you or the media studios/recording labels/huge congolmerates/governments even actually know the definition of theft.

You cannot steal something by making a copy of it.
All you got was a copy. The original is still there where it is supposed to be.
If I look into your garden and see your new lawnmower, and decide I like it, so make my own lawnmower using a 3D printer, making an exact copy of what I see in your yard, that's not stealing your lawnmower.
