Jeremy Hunt, the UK Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, suggested to force all search engines and Internet service providers to apply more and more blocking filters to copyright content.
He believes it’s mandatory to consider all options against illegal online services, because online file-sharing threatens the freedoms and rights of content creators to be rewarded fairly. Jeremy Hunt implied that the United Kingdom might ask search engines and broadband providers to join the fight against piracy more seriously than ever. He claimed that they have to consider all options to make life more difficult for websites ignoring the legislation. That’s why he suggested to put a responsibility on search engines and Internet service providers to take reasonable steps to prevent access to websites that a court has deemed containing illegal material or promoting unauthorized distribution of material.
Hunt also suggested that a “cross-industry body” can be set up to identify violating sites against which action should be taken. The activity of such body can be supported by “streamlined legal process”, which would also help the courts to act more quickly. Finally, voluntary agreements are welcomed to be modified to fight copyright violation. In case such measures can’t be established right now, the country’s government should propose new measures.
Earlier this year, Hunt claimed that the British government would reconsider the present communications legislation. As a result, this past spring the same government launched a consultation between the authorities, the media and communications businesses. The consultation involved telephone providers, TV, radio and Internet publishers, who hoped to receive some feedback about the changes they’ve made. The results of the now closed consultation were supposed to be employed to inform proposals for a Communication Bill in order to help build new communications law applicable in 2015.
In his speech Hunt insisted that it’s vital for freedoms and legislation to apply equally on the Internet as they do in the physical world. He pointed out that the British don’t allow selling some products in the shops on the high street, and therefore they shouldn’t allow shops to be set up to sell illegal content. That’s why the UK should do whatever it can to make it more difficult to access websites involved in illegal file-sharing.

|Sounds good to me. Anyone who knows anything about P2P will be able to get around these measures, and if they don't know how to I'm sure ET will post an article on "How to". Thanks again Sam.|
|simple hide your ip virgin blocked me going on myp2p and soon as i started hiding my ip it let me on the site just put in the full address and dont use search engines|
|Another politician who knows sweet FA about what he's trying to legislate against, seems to be the norm these days, must be receiving a backhander from the media companies involved (OUR Politicians? surely not!).|
Do your worst fool, that's IF you can get the likes of the search engines to play along, I mean, what you going to do if they don't?...nothing, that's what
And even if you managed to push through this pathetic attempt to slow/kill filesharing, it would be circumnavigated by almost everyone within 24hrs, and the rest shortly after.
And @ crazymichel...I'm shocked virgin did that to you, i've never had anything blocked by them, did you call them to inquire? I would have. MYP2P went down a few weeks ago and it had bugger all to do with your isp.
|use the ip address itself|
|@ivorbigun i didnt bother soon as it said i couldnt go on it i just changed my ip address an it let me on it and @demonlord4000 your meant to hide it it prevents your comp from been hacked and if they do block file sharing on search engines the police wont be able to catchyou because it isnt your real ip my real ip says i live in uk my fake one says i live in america|
|thats what you use a premium paid vpn such as vpntunnel.se|
etc., havent had problems ever since jumping onto da vpn bandwagon woot!!xD
|filesharers are more important than real criminals in the UK now huh?|
its safer to hunt filesharers, since they won't be fighting back than to actually go after real criminals.
or, why not crack down on illegal immigrants coming into the country or other people coming just to get free medical treatment that are not entitled to it? it would save the country more money.

|@coco you really need a hobby stop being a sad little racist this is the internet who gives a crap where someone is from or what colour there skin is out here?... thanks for the article SaM.. how does a British organisation even a government backed one going to actually filter search engines? UK block file sharing then use google.com rather than google.co.uk, search engines aren't that hard to make, all that will happen is a load of 'illegal' search engines will pop up specifically for filesharing....... thats not a bad idea actually does someone want to help me make a search engine just for sites like tpb, ET, KAT ect we can host through a African or Russian ISP and no problems.. anyway NOTES FOR NOOBS:|
Virtual Private Network - Make yourself more hidden online - Iprivo FREE VPN -
Super hide ip - Hide ur ip - Available from ET - - best seed copy
The VPN is a bit of a pain because it has a small advert you can close on ur browser but its free and unlimited bandwith so better than getting those dumb as notices through ur door..
KEEP THE INTERNET FREE!

|P.S if you want super hide ip then just search extratorrent for 'super hide ip'|
if you want the free vpn then its iprivo . co m
|Dont forget to use a peer blocker as well as a ip hide,peers are another way to be tracked as well as an ip address.so is http.peerblock will block all Anti P2P IPs also http via default lists its worth remembering that ip hide is not always enough to be safe when peer to peer file sharing.|
|another way past isp filtering stopping you getting onto sites like this is, click on tools on your browser. click internet options, click on options, click on Lan settings.then un tick the box that says use a proxy server, this will get you past the filtering.|

|so will my peer guardian work or do i need extra protection if so please give info or link...thx..|

|a good vpn is all you really need all the rest is window dressing really but good against conventional snooping. clarkshelly is right about the peer blocker but it depends if you really need it, im super paranoid so i have a better security system than most, i have 4 wireless networks around me that I hacked [please note WEP sucks and can be broken in around 20 min] and I bounce through them changing every half a hour, I also run a VPN, super hide ip, avast antivirus and Zone alarm firewall, I also have a few defensive virus's but there's no real full proof security system, if your connected to the internet you just take the risk, a few zombies are handy to bounce your signal through and you can set up security to detect tracing but most of this is a hacker thing, check out the vpn link above, a peer guardian is cool but it only blocks ones that are known and they change rapidly to keep up against the peer blockers..|
|@madmorrow. yes peer guardian or peer block will do run at the same time as hide ip programme always start these before starting vueze or utorrent or similar p2p programme. Auto hide ip changes ip every 5 or ten minutes and you can change countries if you want to i prefer peer block as this blocks http as well as peers.and u can unblock http if u want to surf the net,as with blocking http makes it awkward to surf the net. Its best to shut down your p2p before closing peerblock so you can go on the net|
|kids stabbing kids, teenage pregnancy on the rise, drugs everywhere, a country in financial ruin due to banks committing fraud against the citizens of the UK and her Government and all that anyone higher up the foodchain gives a s@*t about is a bit of P2P filesharing - this country has gone to the dogs.|
|YAWN! yet another blinkered politician who hasn't got a CLUE!|
1. Surefire way to get the Conservatives booted out of office. Hope DC approves, not!
2. UK is not international internet, and like USA, France, Holland or anywhere else NO COUNTRY controls the internet, nor is ever likely to.
3. Good Digital products sell well enough to make their producers fortunes in any case. Bad ones aren't even worth pirating!
4. Not a RAT'S CHANCE IN HELL of the UK blocking international IPs. Perhaps he should read about Newzbin 2's circumventing of Government imposed censorship by BT!
5. he along with all other like-minded Government cronies should be permanently locked up in a loonybin! Boo-Hoo, mega-rich sickos want even MORE of our money!
It's also called the 'international politicians bandwagon' - or let's do something to SEEM IMPORTANT. They crap exactly the same (probably far worse and with far more bigoted constipated difficulty!) but spout the most enormous VERBAL CRAP AND DIARRHEA. You can almost see them dribble as they spout their NONSENSE!
Like most politicians, he has no idea of what he is talking about, says he has identified something that no-one of any consequence cares about in the slightest, offers a fix that could NEVER work, but which costs the taxpayer millions!
