One day internet will be like cable/satallite.


OMG for only $99.99 a month you can get up to 1,000 websites! Most of them are worthless like cooking websites, soap opera news and sports. But you can also order our adult only channel. Only $19.99 per hour! We give you the full listing of sites that you can choose from right on our website which you are forced to use as a homepage, no need to search.

There is no debate here. It's scandalous. The BPI are money-grabbing scroungers living off of other people's talent. They're worse than leechers. Their ratio is .4847:10000. Ignoring some factual errors in the original post, I'm totally on board. As a netizen, it is your duty to find a way of bypassing this web-block.

But now that the BPI has had it's way, surely the sale of DVDs and music will boom, right? No, of course not. And this law will be shown for the draconian, Corporatist, civil liberty infringing, police state bill it is.

Just think how cool Ron Paul would be if he believed in evolution and hadn't been infected with religion.

Out of curiosity, what are those "factual errors" you decided to bring up yet ignore?

can i assume those crying about the pirate bay being blocked in the UK are in fact pirates?

If so just book mark a new torrent site .. and when that get blocked book mark the next one and repeat

Anyone who has downloaded a single song, movie, or game is a pirate. Anyone who claims they've never done that is a computer n00b or a liar.

And if you read my posts in this thread I said this would be of no real consequence but eventually they want to be like China where everything is blocked except what they don't want to be blocked. Thus the cable/satallitle comparison.

i never said that was not the case . simply pointing out the pirate bay is for 1 thing and 1 thing only .. the word pirate in the title is the big give away really.

and people moaning about it being blocked makes me chuckle.

the reason it will be blocked is quite simple when scanning big data you pay for how much data you scan 9 (be it live or stored) .. so in this case it costs nothing to block it and millions to scan it .. its hardly rocket science tbh. And who ever it was suggesting blocking the Pirate Bay is some how civil liberty infringing, probebly needs to either find a new torrent or start paying for what ever instead

what proof do you have of this?

there is ZERO chance of any democratic western society becoming like china or north korea IMO, the political systems dont allow it. Stuff like Wikipedia/google will never get banned/blocked over here .. people who think they will are the for me the same people that believe 99% of all the BS conspiracy theories that float around all the time

more site like pirates bay will get blocked .. but then who cares .. even though everyone uses them to dl whatever the fact is they shouldnt be. if that means i have to start paying for my music in years to come then tough on me tbh.

i do however get what you mean about the ISP thing like ppv tv . but thats different that blocking it totally like china etc IMO .. what your suggesting is just plan corporate greed not political censorship .. but tbh i dont think either will happen.

Having worked at the UKs biggest ISP for 17 years at a senior level and being privey to lots of meeting about the 'futures' of the internet in the UK that kinda shit is was NEVER discussed. Tbh all the care about is speed .. and how quickly they can pull up the 50-60billion $ worth of copper in the ground, sell it to india, and replace it with 20-30 billion $ worth of optic to the house .. thus making them 20-30billion $. That really is all they give a crap about right now tbh ..

You say it can never happen. Let's look at this case: judge rules that almost 10 million U.K people must block this site. That is the first step. You're not paying attention.

They've learned they can't stop places like Pirate Bay from existing so they're going to try to block users access. You say "well there are other torrents sites" Guess where you can search for those sites? And porn and other things? Google. Why not go after Google next? Why not block all search engines because they point to pirated material just like PirateBay. That's all PirateBay is is a SEARCH ENGINE, there's no actual pirated material on their servers. Why do you think there's a limit on what these courts will go after when they know just like you and me this is not going to solve the issue. They will not stop until you are not allowed to any site or search engine that has pirated material.

If people in the U.S. wouldn't of started a near riot SOPA would of passed. Guess what that does? Blocks anything that links to pirated material and gives Government full control over where you can and can't go. Now SOPA has been changed to CISPA. You're not paying attention to what's going on around you. Wake up.

Since you seem to be clueless, educate yourself and read what SOPA and PIPA were.

What the hell are you talking about? "Big data"? What are you rambling about? PirateBay is only linking to torrents through trackers.
