Finnish ISP is forced to block The Pirate Bay

Apotekaren (904220) writes "The Finnish ISP Elisa has been forced to block several domains leading to the infamous torrent-tracker site The Pirate Bay following a court case initiated by IFPI Finland, the Finnish branch of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry. The Helsinki District Court ruled in favor of IFPI Finland in October, but the ISP resisted implementing the block until today because of the terms of the block not being specific enough. The ISP is calling the block "temporary" and is appealing the court decision."
