Report Shows Futility Of US Anti-Piracy Law

Hey don't exclude us! If it doesn't work for the UK, then it is good enough to not work for the U.S. too! big grin

Last week, UK communications regulator OFCOM published a report which came to the conclusion that blocking ‘pirate’ websites would not be effective. The report contained a number of sensitive government redactions which were easily removed, effectively providing a comprehensive guide to bypass web blocking measures. Since the US government wants to adopt the same technical measures via the PROTECT IP Act, they too will be rendered ineffective using the same methods.
