Court Orders ISP To Block Grooveshark

Anyone else see a trend here lately with all these court orders instructing ISPs to block copyright infringing sites? TPB, Megaupload, Grooveshark all blocked or taken down in the last month. So...why did they needed SOPA, PIPA and ACTA again? confused

A group of more than 30 rightsholders have won their case targeted against Grooveshark in Denmark. A court agreed that both the streaming music service and its users infringe recording label copyrights and granted an injunction forcing an ISP to initiate a block of the service. The anti-piracy group behind the action hopes that other ISPs will now follow suit.
