meh. There's always a way. They did this in the UK, people will always find a way. They will eventually realise that the only solution to piracy is delivering content in a timely, affordable manner and getting rid of ridiculous and outdated international distribution deals that results in one country receiving content days, weeks, or months later.

They keep referring to "ThePirateBay" and blocking the IPs of those websites. There is the realisation that ThePirateBay and many other sharing websites change IPs and location of their domain names daily in some cases, right?

I can imagine the legal aspect of it all will be a complete nightmare also; so much ambiguous techno-jargon.

VPN or proxy server anyone?

exactly there are always ways around such things, TOR would be an example

and the web is to big for rights holders to monitor, there will be loads of torrent sites that will pop up & down, TPB will probably suffer, i thing this would be the 3rd or 4th time now lol

but as you where saying and i quote the article "it is tough on piracy and not on the causes of piracy"

HA!

On a completely unrelated note, earlier this year Josh Taylor of ZDNet found that in the last financial year, Village Roadshow donated $227,500 to the Labor Party and $329,919 to the Libs.

Hay Thunderldeal nice find.

4.5 million to Australian political parties since 1998. At least know we know why all the parties support it.

maybe gay marriage and cannabis activists can learn a thing or two here.

GIVE EM CASH!!! then they see your point.

Prostitutes have better morals and are usually nicer people.

One key difference is people pay a prossy to fuck them, but these corporations pay pollies to fuck everyone else.
