The Pirate Bay, one of the world’s most popular filesharing websites, could soon be blocked in Britain after the High Court ruled it illegally encourages users to infringe music copyright.

The judgment by Mr Justice Arnold makes it more likely that major broadband providers will be ordered to cut off the Pirate Bay, which has been the scourge of the music and film industries for almost a decade.

It was only a matter of time. I wonder if the Symantec issue [webmasterworld.com ] escalated this issue at all.
