Sky Broadband blocks access to The Pirate Bay ahead of 1 June deadline

concertina226 (2447056) writes "Internet service provider Sky Broadband has blocked access to The Pirate Bay, following similar moves by Virgin Media and Everything Everywhere.

High Court judge Mr Justice Arnold ruled in April that UK internet service providers (ISPs) must block access to the file-sharing website, on the basis that it “infringes copyright on a massive scale” by providing magnet links to movies, music and other media content.

ISPs were reportedly given different time limits for complying with the order. Sky has acted ahead of its 1 June deadline. O2 and TalkTalk said they are still working to implement the ban and BT, which asked for extra time to make the necessary arrangements, is expected to act within the next fortnight, according to BBC News."
