And, of course, we can expect a pirate party to always follow the rules.

It had said that the political party was helping users overcome a previous ruling that had ordered two of the country's biggest internet service providers to prohibit access to TPB.
...
At the end of April the UK also ordered several of its ISPs to prevent users from accessing the Swedish site.


Not cool, not cool at all.

Was this news on Fark? It should have been if not.
Completely blocking access to specific websites should be the domain of China.

They're more what you'd call guidelines, than actual rules.

This was my reaction too. How the hell did they manage it and how the hell didn't the news appear on Fark?

I'm not pro-piracy, not at all, but forcing ISP's to block specific websites is not what I want to see. Where will the draw the line? I'm sure there's plenty of other websites that their governments don't approve of. I guess we'll soon be seeing the great firewall of England.

Virgin Media complied with the UK government almost immediately - for VM subscribers it was blocked within a couple of days. I'm on Talk-Talk at home and can still access TPB, though from what I've read I shouldn't. Funnily enough, smaller ISPs (such as the awesome Aquiss who I used to be with) aren't obliged to do anything. It's censorship, but arbitrarily applied to affect only the masses.

The more I read about Pirate Bay being persecuted, the more I am convinced that the media moguls view Humanity as nothing but slaves in chains, lined up single-file, hauling huge bushels of cash to dump into the mogul's gaping mouths.

Those aren't pirate terms, they're nautical terms.

Mizzen mast = the aftmost mast on a ship.
Drop anchor = (obvious)
Shiver the timbers = to cause the wooden timbers of a ship's construction to explode under cannon fire, causing the splinters to fly like shrapnel into any unprotected sailor.

Also, "avast" just means "stop".

Do they think this will actually work?
 
2012-05-13 07:38:38 PM
If it wasn't for TPB...I would have never learned about Hide My Ass.

Which is absolutely fantastic.

Did you know that the awe and wonder felt by those who visited the ancient Oracle of Delphi were caused by intoxication by the volcanic gases that were known to escape from the ground in that area?

Hey guys, this book that was released by the European Pirate Party last month is actually really good.

It is impossible to enforce the ban against non-commercial file sharing without infringing on fundamental human rights. As long as there are ways for citizens to communicate in private, they will be used to share copyrighted materials. The only way to even try to limit file sharing is to remove the right to private communication. In the last decade, this is the direction that copyright enforcement legislation has moved in, under pressure from big business lobbyists who see their monopolies under threat. We need to reverse this trend to safeguard fundamental rights.

What methodology are they using to block the PB

CujoQuarrel: What methodology are they using to block the PB


Most likely screwing with the local DNS servers. Packet filtering if they're being at all serious about it. Using a proxy located in some unaffected area would get around either.

works on sky, which I would have thought was one of those `for the masses` type of ISP. Seems very arbitrary.

I've been convinced of this for decades. And I'm 29 :p.
