|Newzbin2 Has Closed 15 Months After Court Order For ISPs To Block Content|
| 3:13 pm on Nov 29, 2012 (gmt 0)|
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]
