UK Internet Filters - Copyright Monopolists Running Amok ?

This is what happens when a blank cheque is given to the copyright mafia..

Nearly one in five of the most visited sites on the internet are being blocked by the adult content filters installed on Britain's broadband and mobile networks.

A Porsche car dealership, two feminist websites, a blog on the Syrian War and the Guido Fawkes political site are among the domains that have fallen foul of the recently installed filters.

The Open Rights Group, which campaigns for digital rights, surveyed the 100,000 most popular sites as ranked by digital marketing research firm Alexa, and found that 19,000 of them were blocked by at least one fixed line or mobile internet service provider.

The situation is pretty much as expected, the copyright mafia are simply abusing their economic advantage over legitimate sites, most of those blocked are not UK based sites and thus are not being given any change to refute the claims of the content monopolist organisations.
