MPAA & FACT lead the charge in new round of *Piracy* blocks


[link to this post]
 
Hello all,
I have just been reading over at ISPreview (HERE) regarding more ISPs to block certain *Infringing* websites

In this round of blocks it seems the following *infringing* websites will be targeted next:
EZTV and Yify-Torrents


ISPs like Sky Broadband, BT, TalkTalk and Virgin Media usually implement the block within a couple of weeks from receipt of a court order.


Does the world need more of this kind of Censorship?

What do you think?

A simple poll of YES/NO or Not Bothered will give a better understanding of the feelings regarding these kinds of matters.

IMHO, I think NO as I believe its setting a dangerous president.
Also because they are going about it like a bull in a china shop.
However I do believe some websites should be closed off, not just the ones which are causing Hollywood and the minority to loose out from royalties fees and lost revenues, they should adapt to the changing times and change their business models..

'More of'? Not bothered.

Any site found to be infringing laws shall be able to have legal sanctions made against it. Yes.

In reply to a post by majika2007:

I agree. There are far too many dangerous presidents in the world. Give me a constitutional monarchy any time.
However I do believe some websites should be closed off, not just the ones which are causing Hollywood and the minority to loose out from royalties fees and lost revenues, they should adapt to the changing times and change their business models..
You mean they should loosen up?

you say the world. it seems to be just the uk.

with the attack on adult sites as well, within a few years I expect quite a lot of web pages will be blocked.

there is also the asa doing something on adult advertising so we could see filtering on advertising also.

It is not censorship but the prevention of theft.

BT blocked a certain usenet site a few years back. To get around the block all you had to do was enter the IP address of the site instead of the web address. These blocks never work, and there is always a way around it
