UK ISPs asked to block 21 file sharing sites including Torrentz.eu, BitSnoop and ExtraTorrent

The sites, including the likes of Torrentz.eu, BitSnoop and ExtraTorrent are to be blocked on October 30.

BT and Virgin Media have confirmed that the block will be implemented in the next two days.

A BT spokesperson said: “BT will only block access to websites engaged in online copyright infringement when ordered by a court to do so. BT has been ordered to block access to these websites, and will do so within the timeframe set out in the court order.”

Gareth Mead, a Virgin Media spokesperson added: “We’ve received court orders requiring us to block a further 21 file-sharing sites found to be infringing on copyright. As a responsible ISP we obey court orders addressed to the company.”

Sky typically does not comment on which sites it blocks but states that it always complies with court orders as and when they’re received. Sky refreshes a list of sites that it’s been asked to block on its ‘Our approach to protecting copyright’ page. So far, Torrentz.eu and the others have not yet appeared.

TalkTalk has yet to respond to a request for comment.

A report from TorrentFreak first revealed that Torrentz.eu, BitSnoop and ExtraTorrent would be blocked in the UK at the end of the month.

Recombu Digital has obtained the full list of sites that are to be blocked:

1337x
Abmp3
BeeMP3
BitSnoop
Bomb-Mp3
eMp3World
ExtraTorrent
FileCrop
FilesTube
Monova
Mp3Juices
Mp3lemon
Mp3Raid
Mp3skull
NewAlbumReleases
Rapidlibrary
TorrentCrazy
TorrentDownloads
TorrentHound
Torrentreactor
Torrentz

This latest wave of site blocking measures is the biggest yet. Previously, rights holders had sought court orders for sites like The Pirate Bay, KickassTorrents, Movie2k and EZTV.

The length of time it took for court orders to materialise meant that there was time for those involved in file sharing to set up mirrors and proxies. Obtaining orders to block several sites all at once makes it easier for rights holders to bring the fight to the pirates.

What a pi**take!

It won't make a minutes worth of difference.

Just spoof your IP and then go in as normal, or use a proxy.

They're trying to block sites, the Internet was set up with the intention that if one route became impassable it would use another, so I wish them good luck, and I'll just carry on using PirateBay on Virgin.


Next week: Court orders all gaming sites to be blocked after 10pm so we get a good nights sleep.

does a proxy not slow down connection speed?

Better than nothing come to think of it.

If you want to bypass any web filter or proxy server blocking any site, you can use Opera with Tor to safely and anonymously view or download whatever you want, because it uses the Opera (Internet Suite), so its really, really fast and the Tor network leaves no trace or History.

Plus This Opera Tor Bundle can be run off any disk: USB, network drive or hard drive.


Opera Tor - Opera + Tor + Privoxy
http://letwist.net/operator

It's basicially a pre-configured bundle and optmized with the Opera Browser, The Onion Router and Privoxy. Just Run: Tor, Privoxy and Opera or click on "Start" in the bundle folder and freely surf away.


You can use these sites to confirm that your orginal IP and location were hidden.

1. http://www.ipaddresslocation.org/
2. http://www.iptoplace.com/
3. http://www.maxmind.com/app/locate_my_ip

Opera Features
http://www.opera.com/products/desktop/

1. Very Fast.
2. Tabbed browing.
3. Mouse Gestures.
4. The Most secure.
5. Lightweight RAM usage despite heavy feature set.
6. Content Blocker (Ad block).
7. Download Manager.
8. Extremely stable.
9. Basic BitTorrent support.
10. Thousands of Skins/Themes
11. Excellent community support.

These guys are trying to perpetuate an old business model that has not moved with the times. If they were in the motor industry we would still be in horses and carts
