With the news of the Pirate Bay case and the court order for UK ISP’s to block use of the site, i can’t stop thinking is Pirate Bay only for Piracy. I can’t remember using the site but I have no doubt in the past I probably have. I used to use torrents a lot in the past not for piracy, although I have probably downloaded unlicensed applications, music and films before, and belive it or not there are sites that use torrents for non illegal stuff freeware like linux OS’s to name but one. Now I read comments from people saying that its a disgrace, I’m not so sure. I do and don’t agree with ISP’s having to stop the site, I think its up to the Music, Game and film companies to protect there products, although on the other hand its up to the ISP’s to stop illegal use of the internet. All this said, with this site going down wont another site just pop up? For every torrent site they take down a new one will just pop up. Also with the decision they are opening the flood gate for more internet censorship, what will they stop next, social media, pornography maybe Wikipedia.
As a virgin media user I will no longer be able to use the site, and as I have said I don’t use the site anyway, so I will not be affected by any of this. But if i wanted to i could just use OpenDNS and bypass virginmedias DNS.
What do you think, should the ISP’s have been ordered to block TPB, is this internet censorship gone too far and is Pirate Bay only for Pirate’s (Piracy)?
