Fluffeh writes "As originally picked up by Torrentfreak, Microsoft Live Messenger now blocks a TPB link via its Live Messenger instant messaging tool. This is somewhat similar to when Facebook started blocking TPB "due to the controversy". This time round, Microsoft is claiming that someone told them TPB was "reported as unsafe." This is troubling on a number of fronts. First of all, a link by itself should never be considered infringing. Second, of course, is the fact that not all TPB content is infringing. Yes, an awful lot of it is almost certainly infringing. But automatically deciding that all of it is and not letting people share such links is extreme and dangerous. Finally, the really scary part is the realization that Microsoft appears to be monitoring content being shared in private communication between two individuals in an instant messenger conversation."
