ISP Dragged to Court for Refusing to Block The Pirate Bay

After several victories in Danish courts, the entertainment industry is now trying to get The Pirate Bay blocked in Norway. The country’s largest Internet provider ‘Telenor’ is now being dragged to court by IFPI, after it refused an earlier request to disable customer access to the world’s most prominent tracker.

“This would be the same as demanding that the postal service should open all letters, and decide which ones should be delivered,” was the response of Telenor’s Ragnar Kårhus at the time, while he stressed that they follow the law and not the demands of the music industry.

Telenor thus refused to give into the demands of the music industry, and invited IFPI to file a lawsuit if they deem it necessary. True to form and together with several movie studios, IFPI has now filed a lawsuit against Telenor.

Sveinung Golimo, a representative for Norwegian film makers said: “We want to highlight this problem. We do not wish to censor the Internet but we do want the possibility to make a living on what we create.” Apparently, the music and movie industries can’t make a living when Norwegians have access to The Pirate Bay.

So instead of changing their business model & adapting to the changing market place (which they should've done 10 years ago) they want to censor the internet.

couldnt resist that pun could you....

but this 'put up a roadblock or we'll sue your ass' method seems like a last desperate move.... they've sued the fans... that didnt work... they've sued the p2p software makers.... that backfired bigtime... they've DDoSed networks... that one really backfired.... so i think they are running out of 'chess peices' with this....

I'm waiting for the elected servants of the people to legislate file sharing to be a Crime Against Humanity and throw us all into concentration camps.

...elected?

I'm referring to the elected governments who create law by legislation. The judges (whose wisdom and impartiality can never be questioned) apply the law.
