    They should block Google while they're at it.

    Virtually the same thing anyway.

    Here in Denmark, The Pirate Bay was blocked by most ISPs, but it has worked for me without a custom DNS ever since they changed to .se

    The Pirate Bay is breaching copyright on a massive scale? Oh, so if google tells me where I can get the full version of a song for free without purchase, doesn't that make google just as bad?

    Fucking hate the government, why must they ruin everything?

    Here (the Netherlands) they also block the IP's next to the domains. BREIN even threatens the proxy's that only do TPB.

    Related to my post, why won't the government give a shit about more important things than a few law breaches, such as why the fuck we're still at war with multiple countries, and why haven't still sorted most third world countries?

    it's easier for them to restrict the internet than it is to actually do anything that matters

    I may not agree with the ruling but I think this is the only somewhat acceptable way to go about it - a court case is much better than the government just being able to shut down sites as they please

    Things like this are getting easy results that look good on paper. In France you have the three strikes and your out laws on piracy. Statistics show a huge drop in piracy, but if you ask around everyone and there dog uses a VPN to download now.

    I originally had O2, but found out they weren't giving my the speed I was paying for so I ditched it for Tesco Broadband. Which is surprisingly very good.

    BT is already blocking it, or should be.
    They were forced into doing it back in 08.

    Oh god, now they're also doing it in the UK?

    They really have to see it won't help.

    They can block sites, proxies, detours, whatever they want, but pirates will find their ways around.

    The only thing they're doing is delaying them, and it even affects people who have nothing to do with this.

    They are just driving the pirates into IRC chats and stuff. And if they're gonna block IRC servers aswell, (which isn't even possible, pirates would make their own connections,) they're heavily affecting normal people using IRC, putting blocks everywhere.

    Time to show them it just. won't. help.

    Yet more curtailing of our liberties and the freedom of information (not the act...)

    Oh well, welcome to the fucking UK Inc. Corporatocracy

    I really don't understand why the entertainment industry can't just accept that the playing field is changing and try to offer something that gives more to paying customers instead of getting in bed with the government and attempting to coerce them into interfering with a free market.

    Finally. I don't know why you people think it's such a horrible thing when sites like this are destroying media companies and the internet. You would have no problem if there was a house being used to create and distribute counterfeit DVDs etc, and that got raided - so why is it so different when it's online instead?

    It's unreasonable to think that it should go on without intervention especially since you know it's illegal anyway.

    Put up with it and buy things instead.

    How much of the money really goes to the artist anyway? The artists I listen to mostly don't use marketing and advertising yet they still get barely anything even if their records sell well.

    "Sites like The Pirate Bay destroy jobs in the UK and undermine investment in new British artists," the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) said.
    Can someone please explain to me how it does this?
