The Newzbin2 case has been covered by the media all over the world for a while now. The UK’s major provider, BT has got a court order to block all access to this service, but the site continues its struggle. Today, the recent news revealed that the service has again accomplished to bypass the UK ISP’s censorship system called Cleanfeed. Newzbin2 managed to do to it by updating the website with a downloadable software instrument that allows its users to avoid the filtering system. This includes the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay and maybe more are to follow.
Both The Pirate Bay and Newzbin2 are known worldwide for facilitating online piracy. Moreover, despite the court’s decisions and a Voluntary Code of Practice being forced onto the country’s largest Internet service providers, it seems that the services keep on going undisturbed. Nevertheless, the governments, as well as high courts and copyrights owners do not realize the fact that broadband providers cannot physically remove the unauthorized and so popular material – at least, not without blocking all Internet traffic. The matter is that it is very easy to circumvent almost any filtering system by simply using such tools as a proxy, VPN, DNS changes and so on.
In addition, it’s thanks to the publicity the Newzbin2 case has received that plenty of people are now becoming aware of how to remain anonymous in the Internet. For example, Secretary General at Internet Service Providers Association explained that the outfit believed there should be some measured and balanced approach to copyright violation committed on the Internet. Moreover, there shouldn’t be such a focus on enforcement. Instead, the industry should turn to developing new business models, more attractive to the consumers, including education of Internet users and modernizing copyright legislation.
Actually, many industry experts have agreed that today the only way to stop unauthorized content from being distributed around is to delete it from its source. Another important step is to stop that source’s funding. It seems that now the governments all over the world had begun to accept this way of addressing the problem and probably in the nearest future they will be ready to take real action against online piracy.

|education of internet users??? lol they should instead educate themselves|
|Good article. They should change with the times, as the same old cat and mouse trick hasn't stopped piracy, and not much else will until they realize this.|
More attractive business models would gather more money than enforcing ludicrous laws, but they haven't done it, or if they have, its not enough to stop people from piracy.
They need to get it right!! And maybe we all wont have to rip stuff from sites.
But then, I'd be lost without ET, so I'm stuffed!!

|Seems like we have less time for downloading>>|
|When will they learn? As long as I can't return a $22 DVD for a full refund (cash), based solely on the fact that it sucked donkeyballs, I will never pay you a dime. Piracy will always be around, as long as there is a reason to be a pirate. Give me a reason NOT to pirate your movies and I'll stop pirating your movies. Otherwise...||
