ISPs No Longer Have to Block The Pirate Bay

A new ruling from the Court of The Hague says that Dutch ISPs no longer have to block the Pirate Bay. Then again, it's not like it was helping much anyway.

Millions of people in the Netherlands will soon be able to regain access to The Pirate Bay after two local Internet providers won their appeal against the Hollywood-funded anti-piracy group BREIN. The Court of The Hague ruled today that the blockade is disproportionate, ineffective, and hinders the Internet providers’ entrepreneurial freedoms.
