The Pirate Bay Continues to Avoid ISP Blockade

JohnBert writes "British, Dutch, Finnish and Belgian judges and governments have been forcing ISPs to block The Pirate Bay and drop thepiratebay.org from their DNS servers. To avoid the blockade, The Pirate Bay has now enabled IPv6 and obtained a /32 block. This enables The Pirate Bay to simply change their IP address, which they can do another 18 quintillion times to avoid being blocked. It can be assumed that, at some point, ISPs and governments will give up trying to block The Pirate Bay."
