Hurr UK ISPs must block Pirate Bay

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17894176

Quote:
File-sharing site The Pirate Bay must be blocked by UK internet service providers, the High Court has ruled.

"Sites like The Pirate Bay destroy jobs in the UK and undermine investment in new British artists," the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) said.

"Its operators line their pockets by commercially exploiting music and other creative works without paying a penny to the people who created them.
The eternal struggle continues and the british frontlines are looking to take heavy casualties if this keeps up.

We've had this for months now. Considering the provers themselves actually make money from torrents (dl speed, etc.) they make an easy-as-heck-to-bypass blockade. Proxy's and/or TOR work like charms. They're not blocking TPB from anyone with at least a little bit of IT knowledge

"the British Phonographic Industry (BPI)" read as "pornographic" then I wondered, does anyone even download porn these days?

There are hundreds of more sites like the Pirate Bay, blocking it is no more then a very slight inconvenience to those who torrent. And, as Smovy said, thats to those who dont know how to use a Proxy or equivalents.

There's no better example of the ignorance of high court judges in their 60's - 70's then these pointless decisions that will change nothing for those who are computer literate enough to torrent in the first place.

Try and explain a proxy to them, and they'd probably have a stroke and piss themselves.

They have several weeks to create the block. Or do you think they would just whip it up in a minute after this ruling had been made? (Sure they can, but they'd want to keep the connection open as long as possible)

Just bookmark this link and you'll be fine until forever: http://anonymouse.org/cgi-bin/anon-w...epiratebay.se/
