File-Sharers Got Angry with UK ISP

After Virgin Media was court ordered to block access to the famous BitTorrent tracker The Pirate Bay, the file-sharers have decided to take direct action against the company.


According to the plan of the protesters, they won’t just employ DDoS attacks on the ISP, but will also start a protest at Virgin Media’s head office. File-sharers promise to target ISP’s worldwide health, airline, and festival brands, not all of which are owned by Virgin Group.

Meanwhile, Virgin Media is the first British Internet service provider to take action after court ordered last week to block access to the most famous BitTorrent tracker on the world – The Pirate Bay. Virgin is using site-blocking software which was originally developed to prevent access to child abuse sites.

A representative for the company explained that the ISP has received an order from the Courts which required the company to prevent access to The Pirate Bay in order to protect against copyright violation. Virgin Media, along with other broadband providers, has to comply with court orders. However, the ISP claims it strongly believes that addressing copyright violation also needs compelling legal alternatives, like their agreement with Spotify, which could allow consumers to get access to copyrighted content legitimately and at the right price.

Aside from Virgin, a number of other ISPs, including TalkTalk, BT, Sky, O2 and Everything Everywhere (Orange and T-Mobile), were also court ordered to follow the copyright outfit’s request to cut access to The Pirate Bay. Still, BT was first to require more time to consider their decision.

Unsurprisingly, The Pirate Bay reacted by offering its users alternative routes like proxy websites.
