Danish Internet service providers have recently reached an agreement with the leading anti-piracy group. As a result, Rights Alliance will now need to obtain a single pirate site blocking order against one broadband provider, and all other ISPs will voluntarily block the same site.
In regard to the pirate website blockades, Denmark is a kind of a pioneer. Eight years ago, the IFPI launched a lawsuit, where a court ordered one of the local ISPs to block Russian MP3 website. Another case was initiated by the music group back in 2008, and resulted in blockade of The Pirate Bay. Then, 3 years ago, the music industry was trying to expand its list of blocked domains by making anti-piracy group Rights Alliance attack Grooveshark streaming service via the courts. Later, the coalition of 30 copyright owners won the case in which Grooveshark took no part.
However, the problem is that although the content industries can now obtain blocking injunctions against “notorious” websites, each action could only target a specific service provider. In other words, even if an injunction was issued against one broadband provider, its rivals were not obliged to comply. Now everything changed.
The telecom industry in Denmark has signed a Code of Conduct that would force all ISPs to put blockades in place. According to the agreement, when a court issues an injunction against a single Internet service provider and orders it to block the pirate website, all other broadband providers will voluntarily start a similar blockade.
Of course, the Rights Alliance was pleased with the agreement, because it will help the anti-piracy group to more easily block pirate websites at the level of broadband providers. According to the newly signed Code of Conduct, Internet service providers will block domains within a few days of another ISP being issued with an injunction.
Danish Minister for Culture said that it is important for copyright owners to have tools at their disposal to fight will illegal use of their creative works. It must be noted that the Code of Conduct will also allow for expanded blocking in the case of the pirate website moving to new IP addresses or domains. The good news is that the agreement also states that in case of a wrongful blocking due to copyright holder’s mistake, the copyright owners will be liable to the Internet service provider for any financial costs incurred.

|Most ISPs will use DNS blocking to prevent access to certain sites and trust me this is what 90% ISPs will do. How this works is,|
when you applied for an Internet connection at the ISP, The have configured your computer to browse through their own Domain Name System (DNS) and made it the default way to access Internet Sites. When you access a blocked site on the ISP’s DNS, the request is nulled or redirected to a pre configured page like ‘This Webpage is Blocked’ etc.
The Solution to DNS Blocking.
Bypassing DNS Blocking is very easy and even a non-tech savvy user will be able to perform it. We will be using either of these 3 DNS OpenDNS/GoogleDNS/ComodoSecureDNS. Here is how its done,
These instructions are mainly crafted for Windows 7 but except the navigation to different parts, All the rest steps remain same.
Step 1. Open Network and Sharing Center (Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center).
Step 2. Click on Change Adapter Settings. Right click on your Main Adapter > Properties.
Step 3. Click on IPv4 or IPv6 according to your connection > Properties.
Step 4. Change the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS Server as follows for the respective DNSs.
For Google DNS:
Preferred DNS: 22.214.171.124
Alternate DNS: 126.96.36.199
For Open DNS:
Preferred DNS: 188.8.131.52
Alternate DNS: 184.108.40.206
For Comodo SecureDNS:
Preferred DNS: 220.127.116.11
Alternate DNS: 18.104.22.168
Step 5. Save the Changes.
That is it, Now just perform a (Optional) Reboot and DNS Flush. Run Command Prompt as Administrator and run the following commands.
ipconfig/flushdns followed by ipconfig/registerdns
|@STFU - That's so old. A work around has been there for many years.|

|well instead of doing what you normally do and post rubbish like a workaround has been there for year's try doing something positive and post this workaround because i found this to be a great way to access this great site without the usual error-site blocked and your negativity is kinda lame|
|or just use anonymox > firefox addon (:^D|
|you`ll find STFU @4 whilst informative it is redundant since as we can read it we have already circumvented ISP blocks n`est pas. (:^D|
|@2 tis old but works and whatever does the job it`s a moot point since none of us here have been blocked or we would not be able to talk about it regardless of ISP`s efforts to the contrary.|
|yup as long as there is a way to get to et does it matter how lol all the best et and all ts members keep it strong and the govrments wrong .|
|tnx for the share, only around 80% can protect by isp blocking|
