The Pirate Bay Faces UK Blockade

Do you ever wonder how much money has been wasted trying to block access to the Pirate Bay. I am not advocating piracy, I'm just saying that the amount of time, money and resources used to take them down is mind boggling.

High Court Justice Arnold has sided with them, claiming The Pirate Bay does not only enable or assist copyright theft, but actively encourages it. "I conclude that both users and the operators of [The Pirate Bay] infringe the copyrights of the claimants آ… in the UK," said the judge in a written statement. The judgement paves the way for a court order for ISPs to start blocking their users access to The Pirate Bay. A final decision is expected in June.
