I don't recall too many sites closing after such an order: Most just moved elsewhere.
Newzbin2, once one of the web's most popular sites offering links to pirated content, has decided to close.

It comes 15 months after a UK court ordered internet service providers to block the site, and amid global pressure from copyright holders.

Internet rights groups said the move was "pointless" in stopping piracy.

In a statement, Newzbin2's owners said it had struggled to cover costs because payment providers had "understandably lost their nerve".Newzbin2 Has Closed 15 Months After Court Order For ISPs To Block Content [bbc.co.uk]
