Australian TEQSA succeeds in Federal Court action to block access to cheating websites

The site violated the rules under section 114B of the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (TEQSA Act). The order, approved in October 2021, requires that all 51 telecommunications providers in Australia block the site.
