File-Sharers Got Angry with UK ISP

File-Sharers Got Angry with UK ISP

After Virgin Media was court ordered to block access to the famous BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay, the file-sharers have decided to take direct action against the company.


According to the plan of the protesters, they won’t just employ DDoS attacks on the ISP, but will also start a protest at Virgin Media’s head office. File-sharers promise to target ISP’s worldwide health, airline, and festival brands, not all of which are owned by Virgin Group.

Meanwhile, Virgin Media is the first British Internet service provider to take action after court ordered last week to block access to the most famous BitTorrent tracker on the world – The Pirate Bay. Virgin is using site-blocking software which was originally developed to prevent access to child abuse sites.

A representative for the company explained that the ISP has received an order from the Courts which required the company to prevent access to The Pirate Bay in order to protect against copyright violation. Virgin Media, along with other broadband providers, has to comply with court orders. However, the ISP claims it strongly believes that addressing copyright violation also needs compelling legal alternatives, like their agreement with Spotify, which could allow consumers to get access to copyrighted content legitimately and at the right price.

Aside from Virgin, a number of other ISPs, including TalkTalk, BT, Sky, O2 and Everything Everywhere (Orange and T-Mobile), were also court ordered to follow the copyright outfit’s request to cut access to The Pirate Bay. Still, BT was first to require more time to consider their decision.

Unsurprisingly, The Pirate Bay reacted by offering its users alternative routes like proxy websites.

No avatarGuys... to be fair Sam's article is not about Virgin blocking Pirate bay BUT about file sharers hitting back; so not quite what you were "banging on about" Raptor5. Your comment was purely about Virgin blocking pirate bay.

nobs68 avatarGood article Sam. Virgin Media is my ISP,

hrg avatar@4get domino22 nobs68: if your happy being told what you can and cant do on the internet then close down your account here the piratebay is just the star, if they can force 1 through where does it stop?
filtering torrents because you could be filesharing illegal content? then close down google! if you type the name of a movie then torrent at the end on google you will find a list of websites and it will direct you to the torrent within it all the piratebay ect are search engines, they dont hold material just allow a easy way to locate it so if you agree with virgin media then close down google, yahoo, msn filter out the internet so all you can get on is the coca cola website but you better filter that too because it contains caffeine and could be harmful, you know what naff it lets just stop the internet its not like it matters right?

nobs68 avatar@ bigcow2k Virgin Media blows Sky out of the water when it comes to broadband. Sky is SHITE.
@ hrg as a matter of fact do you live in the real world. "Repressive State Apparatus"
We are told every day what we can and cannot do.

Zettabyte avataryah in my country we have police that will lock you up if you try to do things they do not want you to ..as far as article ..new information on old news is still new information TY for this post..its a sad world we live in when what you see and read is monitored and blocked from access...this reminds me of the nazi war party efforts

Raptor5 avatarWell atleast one person agrees with me, its not about moaning about the road being blocked. Its about YOUR INTERNET FREEDOM. Why do some of you fail to understand.....once one site is on the governments naughty list and the whole of a nation is then effectivly banned, restricted, companies and isp's being effectivly turned into Internet police to monitor their own customers emails and online activitys is not far behind. So get your facts correct before slating me.

bigcow2k avatar@nobs68 yeah i know sky's crap, but there's no fibre optic coverage here where i live

posted by ET junkieET lovermen (2012-05-10 22:08:03)
wingit3 avatar@bigcow2k As I have no cable here I'm on sky and I can download a 5gig movie in about 10 to 15 minutes. If you're not on cable your download speed depends on how close you live to your phone exchange. I'm quite close to mine.. For me SKY is quite good..

posted by Turtle (2012-05-10 23:49:34)
bigcow2k avatar@wingit that actually depends how close u are to the nearest exchange servers. 5 gigs in 10-15 mins is quite impressive. i'm pretty sure your "up to" speed is higher than mine. i get only around 3+Mbps when i tested my broadband speed.

imouse avatarVirgin have just done the minimum required under that court order, they haven't even attempted to block the proxy access. That's something at least...

posted by (2012-05-11 12:35:50)
nobs68 avatar@wingit, I have Virgin Media 50meg fibre optic which has a DL speed of around 6mb/s which equates to 360mb/m so at full wack
I can DL a 5Gb movie in roughly 12 to 13 mins so what your saying is with Sky you roughly have the same speed as Virgin Media`s
fibre optic. Are you using Sky`s new fibre unlimited, its not yet available to us up north yet.I had Sky but with 4 computers
needing bandwidth had to change to Virgin, I was only getting 3meg at best with Sky.

plisscin avatarToo get round the block use a program call Ultrasurf it works great i am on virgin media and have no probs getting the piratebay

skreamer avatarAh well on the previous thread about this I did query why VM and wouldn't this have been asked of all other UK ISP's.

Raptor5 have you actually looked through the T&C yet?

So far thankfully for me my ISP has not made the move...yet.

anthony357 avatarhi to all i have virgin media just like to say ultrasurf works great pirate bay know problem

No avatarMentioned this before, but just to remind everyone. The music and film moguls know they haven't a cat in hell's chance of doing anything about piracy (And I would suggest EVERYONE in the UK changes over to Non-UK DNS servers, so the courts have no jurisdiction whatsoever over your browsing!) but they don't like TPB hosting a lot of material by unsigned bands, hence their action. Just like the FBI ripping into MegaUpload, because the 'ultra-richie's took fright over Mega's intended new media business model that would cut out the likes of the music and film companies.

Bigger fish to fry in the UK, as the Government want to store one year's worth (so they say . . . their storage capacity at GCHQ Cheltenham can easily store SEVEN year's worth of this data) of ALL UK EMAILS, ALL UK LAND AND MOBILE PHONE CALLS and EVERYONE's ENTIRE WEB BROWSING HISTORY (They'll have one heck of a job with the web browsing and P2P if (AND WE MUST!) ALL USE NON-UK DNS SERVERS FROM NOW ON.

THEY SAY they won't be looking at content, don't believe a word of it. Once they have access, all hell break's loose on everyone's privacy. The Police will use it more routinely than phoning or writing to mother, and all opposition MPs will be at risk of being busted or blackmailed over anything.


It's time for EVERYONE AS IN EVERYONE, ALL OF US IN OUR MILLIONS TO STAND UP AND BE COUNTED and defeat the BIGGEST THREAT to Civil Liberty, Human Rights, Right to Privacy and Right to a Private Life in the free world, without ALL electronic communication being monitored all of the time.

ONLY IRAN AND CHINA have anything similar in place. They won't catch a single terrorist, paedophile/paedophile group or anyone out for serious crime or harm to others, as they'll ALL go underground on changed DNS servers, anonymous proxies, VPN AND they'll totally encrypt all their communications. BUT WE WILL ALL HAVE LOST OUR ENTIRE PRIVACY ENTIRELY FOR NOTHING.

No avatarPS.

One solution is to use the IP address for TPB which is Simply copy into browser URL address box and press enter.

Next solution, Google "change DNS server" note what to do, then Google "Google DNS servers" and write down and use these values. Prevents any UK ISP site 'blocking'

Or use a proxy, or use VPN etc. No doubt other mirror sites linking (MAKE SURE THEY ARE FREE!) to TPB will soon arrive.

Plain English File sharers 25, BPI 0 - Match totally lost by the Courts and the BPI -

Why do they even bother!!!!

BPI lost before they even started!!!!
