The Pirate Bay is perfectly known by the world for being hunted. Now again, following a complaint filed by the Irish Recorded Music Association, the country’s High Court ordered a number of Irish broadband providers to prevent Internet users from accessing the torrent tracker within 1 month.
The list of Internet service providers who received the above mentioned court request built on the decision that The Pirate Bay encouraged its members to infringe the copyright legislation included Imagine, UPC, Vodafone, Hutchison 3G, Digiweb and Telefonica O2. All of them were given 30 days to comply with the order. Now this term has expired, but it looks like some of the Internet service providers met their obligations even earlier. In other words, they have already put a lock on The Pirate Bay.
As you know, not long ago the same anti-piracy blockade was also enforced in the United Kingdom, but not only over The Pirate Bay – the British black list also included KickAssTorrents and other portals. So, the experts admit it wouldn’t a surprise if later at the request of the local entertainment industry other file-sharing portals are targeted in the same way. At the moment, The Pirate Bay members are able to circumvent the blockade and enjoy their Internet freedom by using The Pirate Bay proxy website, the list of which can easily found online.

|The Irish / English government should be embarrassed, because they haven't a clue about technology. Idiots.|
|I agree with dub_boy, but I also think ISPs should not block these sites just because the goverment say so. I see that all torrent sites are free to access. now The Pirate Bay as been block again there is no hope.|

|I'm in U.K. and a lot of the PB proxies are banned but not all...yet. I think spetznia means an actual proxy, not a PB proxy. I used anonymous dot me until I got hold of the PB proxy list. You just type in the website you want and it will come up even if your isp has it banned. I know a few people who use it in work where they have banned certain sites|
