+ - US media companies force UK ISP to block internet ->

Submitted by Wowsers
Wowsers (1151731) writes "The American film and music cartel have won a landmark case in the UK, forcing an internet provider to block access to Newzbin2 that the media cartel say are infringing copyright, in an effort to protect the media cartel's failed business model.

The court case sets a worrying precedent as the ruling could mean that media companies tell internet providers to block access to any website, without a court order or any due process. The future looks more worrying as more companies use this ruling to silence critics of their companies., and politicians silence opposition parties."
