Austria Will Have to Block The Pirate Bay

Austria Will Have to Block The Pirate Bay

Austrian Internet service providers have been told that they only have three days to block such file-sharing websites as The Pirate Bay and Movie4K. The latter is known as one of the world’s most famous streaming services. The demands to ban pirate sites were supported by Hollywood-backed anti-piracy outfit VAP and both the Supreme Court in Austria and the European Court of Justice.

The industry observers recall the 2011 events, when Kino.to (one of Germany’s largest pirate streaming sites), was closed down following the largest law enforcement action in Europe. Now, even with the portal long gone, the disruption it caused seems to affect TPB and a couple of other file-sharing services.

One month before Kino.to was shut down three years ago, one of the Austrian broadband providers, “UPC”, was served with a preliminary injunction which ordered the company to block subscriber access to the website. The local anti-piracy outfit had been on the warpath since 2010 and had finally got its way after the ISP refused to comply voluntarily.

In response, UPC insisted that the ISP couldn’t be held responsible for a website it had nothing to do with. The company also claimed that no court ruling determined that its subscribers were breaking the law by visiting Kino.to.

So, the Austrian Supreme Court asked the European Court of Justice to explain whether an ISP could be required to block the illegal website visited by its customers. Three months ago, the ECJ delivered the verdict. First of all, the court agreed that no specific relationship is required between the copyright infringer and the intermediary against whom any injunction had been issued. And then, proof of illegality wasn’t required either, because the law exists not only to bring an end to infringement, but also to prevent it.

Overall, the court ruling said that Internet service providers can be required to block access to infringing websites. For example, Austria’s Supreme Court agreed that the blockade against Kino.to (even though it is long dead) was correctly applied. On the back of this ruling, the anti-piracy outfit wrote to local ISPs, demanding to block three infringing sites – The Pirate Bay, Movie4K and Kinox.to, the successor to Kino.to. The broadband providers were given only three days to comply with the demands.

shivababa avatarPirate bay is legal, as it stores no data on its site. Does it not use magnetic torrents?
