ISP ordered to block access to an illegal file sharing site

The Motion Picture Association were pleased yesterday when a High Court Judgement ruled that Internet Service Provider BT now has to block web users in the UK from accessing an illegal downloads site - Newzbin2. (Newzbin2 is a members only site that directs users to other locations on the web where content, including music and movies can be downloaded illegally).

Creative industries see this ruling as a major step forward in protecting their content against piracy.
