Pirate Bay outlawed in UK High Court
Five British internet service providers have been ordered to block access to the Swedish website, The Pirate Bay.
The High Court ruled that the file-sharing site “massively” infringed copyright.
The court case was taken by the British music trade association, BPI, which claimed that The Pirate Bay was endangering jobs in the UK, reports news agency TT.
A statement on the file-sharing website called the judgment “censorship” and denied that the website is breaking copyright law.
The four founders of the website were found guilty of copyright infringement and sentenced to one year prison terms in Sweden in 2009.
