It seems that Sky, Virgin Media, BT, and perhaps other ISPs have started an off-the-books campaign against pirate proxies. As you know, some of the major BitTorrent portals, including The Pirate Bay, Kat.ph, H33t, and Fenopy, can’t be accessed in the United Kingdom any longer (at least not by their original web addresses). As a result, Internet users have turned their heads towards alternatives, where the most popular option is pirate proxies. Apparently, the BPI and British broadband providers had done the same.
There is a long list of websites operating as proxies, which appear to be partly blocked now. The matter is that all websites in that list provide access to at least one of the torrent websites previously blocked by court order. The operators of the portals admit they never thought the BPI would go that far. They have already started setting up new servers, but still believe that educating people about alternate methods will be better. Some experts release lists of good methods on their own pages online. In the meanwhile, operators have to move their sites to new servers to keep them accessible.
In response, BPI pointed out that the court orders obtained in relation to TPB cover not just thepiratebay itself, but also websites having the sole or predominant purpose of providing access to the largest BitTorrent tracker in the world. This is why the outfit believes it wouldn’t be right to allow proxy services flagrantly to circumvent blocks ordered by the High Court. The anti-piracy group doesn’t publish the names of proxies, claiming that it wouldn’t be appropriate for them to do so.

|Knowledge is power - thanks JayceUK. Another string to our bows.|
Wonder what the true legality of this is. Did the Law state to block ThePirateBay? If so there could be a reason to say ThePirateProxy is not ThePirateBay. Blah.

|Easy work around, Get Opera browser and run search bar in turbo mode and you will find the blocked sites.|

|To access h33t from UK use OPERA browser's built-in free proxy: Settings > Preferences > Webpages > Opera Turbo > ON ... works for all blocked sites, kat and TPB too!|
This is how you do the set up on Opera.
|add anonymox plugin and external ip to firefox,choose a proxy and refresh IP by right clicking external IP works for all blocked sites and 500mb a month free allowance equates to a shed load of downloaded torrent files|
|I'm on Talk Talk don't have that problem only the pirate bay is blocked for me but i can get around that|

|Download a browser extension called "Stealthy".|
It sits at the top of your browser in a small box & when you want to visit blocked sites, click the icon and it will go from red to green and you can then access all the sites (no proxy site alternative needed).
Its free and there are no ads.

About 40 US dollars (convert to local currency) per *year* gives you access to high speed VPN access points around the world.
For this post I am bouncing via Hong Kong. Speed is good.
I have watched local Formula 1. I have been known to watch BBC streaming too.
The service is legal. If I watch geographically restricted content via this service, is it illegal? There is no notice telling me that I should be a good boy and not watch if I am using a VPN service. No doubt, given then chance, laws will be introduced to make this sort of thing illegal.
How can they do that? The service is not illegal. Even the actions are not illegal.
The issue is with the content suppliers who want to maximize local audience to push advertising.
Tomorrow I will be "in the UK" just to see what the BBC has to offer next week. See you around.
