Pirate Bay Traffic has Doubled Post-ISP Blocks

The attempts to stop the Pirate bay is a perfect example of over thinking a situation. All of the efforts of the governments of the world have done nothing but double the Internet traffic to Pirate Bay since efforts to shut down the file sharing site began.

And not every legal entity in Europe is convinced that the tactics are having much of an effect at all. Earlier this year, a Dutch court of appeal ruled that ISPs should not block The Pirate Bay at an IP and DNS level because those measures are ineffective.
