Blocking these sites is going to drive the pirates out of the mainstream, imho.

A court in France has ordered Google, Microsoft and Yahoo to block 16 video-streaming sites from their search results.

The case was brought by five groups representing film companies, distributors and producers.

The High Court in Paris ruled the websites were dedicated to the "distribution of works without consent of their creators".French Court Orders Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, and Others To Block Video Pirates Sites From Search [bbc.co.uk]
Google said it was disappointed with the court's verdict.

"We are committed to helping content owners fight piracy across Google's tools, and we will continue to work with them so that they can make the best use of our state of the art copyright protection tools," the company said in a statement.

sites broke French intellectual property laws


Lots of people knock the French, but they are very good at supporting France and their laws and traditions, they don't roll over for corporations, or even the EU.

I could add, and support their way of life... Mondays no good, recovering from 'le weekend', Tuesdays and Wednesdays 'OK we will work', Thursday 'what are we doing this weekend', Friday 'oh it's the weekend !'
