As you know, we have already been blocked in Denmark, following a complaint filed by anti-piracy group Rights Alliance. Aside from ExtraTorrent, some other leading file-sharing services also suffered from the court order granted in Denmark. The country's major Internet service providers will have to respect the blocking order by following the signing of a piracy code of conduct last year.
Anti-piracy groups believe that website blocking remains one of the most effective instruments to reduce instances of online piracy. It’s a method employed in a growing list of countries all over the world, especially in Europe.
By the way, Denmark was one of the first countries to block The Pirate Bay 7 years ago, and can be regarded as a pioneer in this field. Then, the subsequent action by anti-piracy group Rights Alliance resulted in the ISP-level blockade of now-defunct music streaming service Grooveshark in 2011.
Earlier in 2015, Rights Alliance took another action that resulted in the blocking of a dozen large websites including KickassTorrents, RARBG and streaming service Tubeplus. Now the anti-piracy group is back, with its biggest blocking effort yet, which resulted in a court order to block additional 20 piracy websites at the ISP level.
The group explained that targeting so many popular services at once has two distinct aims. First of all, blocking one site at a time would make but a little disturbance, because the user requests would be simply redirected to other likewise illegal services. Secondly, swarm blocking allows for a more massive intervention in the user flow and may have a positive impact on user behavior.
Although the anti-piracy group still needs to obtain a court order to have the latest batch of websites blocked, this process is helped by a code of conduct signed by ISPs last year, which ensures that when a court issues an injunction against a single broadband provider, all rival ISPs voluntarily implement similar blockades.
Moreover, the blocking won’t stop here, with Rights Alliance promising to continue the effort for as long as it considers it an effective tool to fight copyright infringement. The group revealed that it had seen a 40% decrease in the use of Danish movies in the BitTorrent network after the last “blocking wave”.

|Just shows how corrupt the Politicians in Western Countries are towards the citizens. Why is down loading from sites like this carried out by millions of people.|
BECAUSE OF PRICE GOUGING BY THE MOVIE INDUSTRY & MUSIC INDUSTRY.
In western countries the price you pay to go to the Cinema is set in the USA Years ago they were limited on how much they could charge a Cinema for the rent of a movie but then they conned the Cinemas with a Share Profits deal they pointed out to the Cinema Industry that they would not be paying rent on the quiet sessions when most seats are empty. So they introduced a deal where the Cinema just paid a percentage of the GROSS box office takings. At first when they were pushing the Cinemas over to this new deal we were talking percentages as low as 15% and upto 50% on Block Busters . But once ALL cinemas were signed up and no option to go back to the Renal system the percentages sky rocketed in Favor of the movie company and their distributors . When Towering Inferno & Earth Quake came out the cinemas learnt how screwed they were it was the end of the Independent Cinema Owner not only did they have to charge more for the ticket they had to pay 90% Gross Box Office and make their money from the Canteen , they had to greatly increase price of Drinks and Popcorn.
Then Videos came out another money stream before the movie went to the TV station and of course the cost of Videos was inflated.
The Cost to Free To Air TV kept rising for movies and TV Shows so the TV stations have had to greatly increase cost of Advertising and you have to pay that as it is added to your purchases .
Then if you watch TV you have to suffer more TV breaks and more Adds but the film makers did help the TV stations there they reduced to actual length of each TV show to allow for the extra adverts.
You Pay income tax and tax on your Purchases and Local companies pay tax on earnings.
But we now come to the Multi –International Corporations who control the movie Industry the people your government is bending over back would to increase the profits of these corporations by stopping down loading from pirate sites on the internet. Well these corporations practice tax avoidance and avoid paying the taxes they should but your government does not go after the taxes they go after you for downloading copyright material. what the Governments should tell these Corporations that they don’t recognize Copyright if the owner or distributor is avoiding paying the correct amount of tax by using creative accounting to slip behind tax laws. I have to pay more Tax because these corporations avoid paying tax and I avoid paying them any money so they can’t avoid paying tax on money they have price gouged from me. Iam not stealing them Iam protesting by saying F’’K YOU IAM NOT GOING TO PAY YOU WHILE YOU DON’T PAY MY GOVERNMENT CORRECT TAX.
