The Pirate Bay blocked in Holland
Dutch court has ordered internet providers to block ‘the world's most resilient BitTorrent site’, The Pirate Bay, or face a fine of €10,000 per day, Associated Press reports. Internet service providers Ziggo and XS4ALL disagree with the ruling and have already appealed against it, but for now they had to comply with the court decision and make The Pirate Bay sites inaccessible for Dutch users.
In a touching press release from January 2012 The Pirate Bay once again declared their beliefs in free internet and said that PIPA and SOPA acts ‘can’t do anything to stop’ them. Nevertheless, the site is currently unreachable for most people in the Netherlands. Of course, there are ways to bypass any blockade, but the question is whether many people would look for them, especially because there often are easier ways to reach the desired content. I’ll keep you posted on the topic.
