Dutch court sinks Pirate Bay proxy site
BREIN convinces Dutch court to scuttle Pirate Bay proxy in continuing legal battle.
Two Dutch ISPs were forced to block The Pirate Bay last year, based on court rulings pushed by BREIN (Bescherming Recten Entertainment Industrie Nederland, pronounced "brain" and similar to the RIAA and MPAA in the US). Pirate Bay fans laughed, pointing out the huge number of Pirate Bay proxy servers that redirect users to torrented content.
Few are laughing now, as BREIN acquired an injunction against a popular proxy site,with fines of 10,000 euros per day. An updated injunction gave only six hours notice before the takedown was ordered and the fines started. The court ignored requests to hear directly from the Dutch Pirate Party and their arguments against the injunction. A list of alternative proxies has been provided on a general proxy while the Pirate Party continues their legal fight.
people, rise up against the dictator and........., whoops, sorry i was thinking this was North Korea, not Holland, where they censor and block the internet and proxies.
