You can also use Tor project browser for complete online anonymity. This totalitarian bull**** really rags me.

Really dumb move from British ISPs. There's obviously a lot of ass-kissing, Hollywood pressured Sweden's anti-piracy bureau to take action in the past and are probably the ones pushing for these kinds of policies to begin with.

Overall it really is a dumb move, because it doesn't solve anything other than restrict the users just that much more.

my ISP is O2 which is one of the ISPs blocking it, now when I go to thepiratebay.org it redirects me instantly to thepiratebay.se, was it always like that and I didn't notice?

It's not UK ISPs vs The Pirates, its the courts.

The ISPs HAVE to comply with the order.

I think it kinda sucks TPB is being singled out. If one is blocked then it only seems fair they're all blocked...

What method are they using to block?

Surely just changing to Google DNS would unblock?...

They're blocking at the IP level, you need a proxy to get around it.

I use Open DNS anyway but everything looks like my ISP is not blocking the site at the moment. BE is my ISP which I think is part of O2.

BE are just awesome, best ISP in the UK, imo. It's true they're owned by o2, but they operate as a separate company and have a more lenient Fair Usage Policy.

I just wish they offered fibre, I wouldn't have to think twice about signing up.

Not everyone can afford to pay $60 or more to try out software. It would be unfortunate for them if Pirate Bay went away.

Pirate Bay is just one of 74747584834 torrent websites, this doesn't change anything, besides, there's already ways to bypass it easily.

Internet piracy is here to stay.
Accept it.
Embrace it.
Adapt your business model to compete against it, or die fighting it.

It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives.
It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.
