Belgium Expands Blocks On The Pirate Bay

Censorship 1

bs0d3 (2439278) writes "The Belgian Anti-Piracy Federation (BAF), has been threatening ISPs into expanding their blockade of thepiratebay. Recently they have been sending threatening letters to various additional ISPs who were not involved with the original judgment to block thepiratebay. The letter "kindly requests" that all ISPs voluntarily block thepiratebay or BAF will bring legal action against them. The ISP "BASE" has succumb to these legal threats. Also many of the same Belgian ISPs have taken it one step further and also blocked the dns for depiraatbaai.be. depiraatbaai.be was setup by thepiratebay as an alternative domain which directs users to the piratebay's servers to circumvent dns type censorship. For those who can't wait for The Pirate Bay to set up new alternative domains, a full working mirror of the site still exists at malaysiabay.org, which was originally set up to circumvent the piratebay block in Malaysia."

A better link at that. (1)

Go figure http://malaysiabay.org/ [malaysiabay.org] is actually a better link. I needed Open Office so got it.
There's no link to http://www.premium-xyz-downloads.info/ [premium-xy...loads.info] that one can end up on hitting the wrong download -as I find easy to do if in a hurry.
