The battle has gone so far now. The anti-piracy groups are not sparing the famous and loved torrent site "The Pirate Bay" and it’s still trying to keep itself afloat. Recently a telecoms company, Telenor was being told and even forced to get a stoppage over "The Pirate Bay" but the vary effort has been failed as a court of Norway, Oslo Court which just declined leave to appeal the original verdict. Telenor is said to be a well known and even sixth largest in Telecoms Company.
International Federation of the Phonographic Industry and others dragged Telenor to courts last year. The reason why it was being dragged into courts is because of not agreeing to stop access to the "The Pirate Bay".
And regarding the same topic, a spokesman for Telenor, Atle Lessum said, "You cannot sue a ladder manufacturer because someone used one of his ladders to commit a burglary"
"We therefore reject imposed censorship like this," added by him.
Tono, Norway’s Performing Rights Society including a plaintiffs, excerpted the court’s law.
An argument was raised by Tono about the order and instructions of Europe on intellectual property and added that "It has not been correctly implemented in Norwegian law."
According to the appeal of The Oslo court, no judge can order any ISP to stop traffic to those sites which are involved in illegal downloading and that’s based under Norwegian law.
Oslo court said, "In the spirit of the law on intellectual property, Telenor does not contribute to behavior that is reprehensible or could be subject to awarding compensation by letting its customers access The Pirate Bay."
This seems to be satisfactory news for the extremely harassed ”Pirate Bay". It has faced so much of problems last year and it’s still trying to survive caring hopes to get up. But the problem are going so much far now as even in Europe, the plans to take harsh actions over is ISPs have been strengthened more than ever.
Moreover, a local ISP Tele2 had been given a strict order last week by a Danish judge to stop the access to "The Pirate Bay" and just after it, an order had been given to the national ISPs by Italy to filter out the site.
