The BPI (British Recorded Music Industry), the voice of the British recorded music bizz, is reported to make desperate efforts of extending its Internet-blocking policy about The Pirate Bay onto other largest broadband providers, including TalkTalk, Virgin Media, Sky, O2, and Orange.
The British Recorded Music Industry outfit officially demanded BT to block access to the “rogue” website known as The Pirate Bay – the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker. This may invoke the MPA against BT case – a well-known and debatable lawsuit which managed to set a precedent in the fight against piracy thanks to the court’s decision to order BT to block access to Newzbin service.
As if it wasn’t enough, now the music industry, with the help of multiple industry trade outfits, wishes that BT would voluntarily restrict access to The Pirate Bay website without court injunction. Meanwhile, if the Internet service provider fails to comply with the requirement, it’s likely that the British Recorded Music Industry would seek justice in the court of law by obtaining the required injunction.
Taking into account the fact that the current censorship system should be extended onto other Internet service providers as well, the anti-piracy outfit has now extended its main objective, that of blacklisting The Pirate Bay BitTorrent tracker, to all of major broadband providers of the United Kingdom. The outfit issued a statement, saying that it is engaging in further dialogue with the Internet service provider BT on this issue. The organization also admitted that it has written to the UK’s other largest broadband providers – Virgin Media, O2, Orange, Sky, and TalkTalk – to ask them to block access to the BitTorrent tracker. Now the outfit is waiting for their responses.

|It's illegal under European law to block websites. So if they do, they will be sued. I know the UK government like to defy Europe, but in the end they are forced to comply.|
|i dont class it as piracy.piracy is getting it for nothing i pay my broadband so im paying for what i download.|
|narutodono. A proxy might bypass them, a good VPN would bypass this and a cheap VPN might of which some like VPNReactor are free. You may need to give it a go|
Having said that although it is very nice to be able to go to pirate bay, there are many other sites like this one you could go too. Of course it depends on how far these guys take it. I had a fight with my ISP over the user groups and the ISPs can do a lot to block you if they want.

|miami_j try OpenDNS here "|
|Legislation like this is beyond retarded and shows just how ignorant policy makers are. ISP filtering is one of the easiest things to circumvent that any child can do. This stuff accomplishes nothing but makes us wonder just how stupid these people can be.|

|better not happen, as once the isps start caving they will all usually follow. I sites are block by an isp here in Ireland as the isp caved to the industries. They lost man customers due to blocking many things not just tpb i assume. They are trying to get them all back now with there crap speed and packages.|

|lol wow the errors in my previous post, it's actually quite funny, they 'lost man customers' that's hilarious. also should be their at end and many sites are blocked....|
this posting wasn't working for ages for me so i am indulging in them now.
|i wonder if they only are blocking the dns name or the ip address of tpb server as well|
|with all the pakis and other garbage people that keep moving to the UK, just leave that waste of a country and move to eastern europe like it seems most are doing to get cheap land and start over...|
the dutch are doing it, going to leave the sinking and future flooded country full of africans and other garbage foreigners while they move to better lives in eastern europe.

|The PB is well organized, but hardly the best, or only, site out there. Block one site on 2 more will pop up!|
Seems useless, I don't use TPB and yet I still find everything.

|I know it is kind of irrelevant really as there are like 1000s of different sites, why just choose one and single it out. They've been trying for years now to get it blocked or shutdown. spending millions apparently in the process.||
