Court ruling will force ISPs to restrict access to notorious torrent site
One of the most frequented illicit filesharing websites in the western world will be blocked within the UK following a breakthrough High Court ruling.
Internet service providers (ISPs) such as Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media must block out all access to the Piratebay.org website.
The British Phonographic Industry (BPI) hailed the ruling, claiming that sites like The Pirate Bay “destroy jobs in the UK and undermine investment in new British artists."
Internet piracy has plagued game creators and publishers for more than twenty years.
