Submitted by cjpa
cjpa writes: They have been ordered by a Belgian judge to implement a DNS blocking regime in relation to 11 links leading to The Pirate Bay and they will have 14 days to do so, or they will be risking a fine.

The case had been initiated by the Belgian Anti-Piracy Federation (BAF). The parties involved have not yet commented on the verdict.

The point is: Why would you filter at all? Children don't have a school-issued filter on their mouths, ears, pens, etc. This is the perfect example of what's wrong with the United States at this time. State-enforced external morals with no rationale is loathsome. I believe your founders thought the same, which is why they had this thing called the First Amendment.

Wrong. This isn't intended for your mother. This is about ensuring that the entire chain of ISPs, web hosters, etc between you and these well-known sites is IPv6 ready.

The fact is that the "real" internet backbone (the people who provide the connectivity to the people who provide your ISP's connectivity) has been IPv6 for a while now. They are ready. Many others aren't. This will allow everyone to test things. Last IPv6 day a large number of issues were successfully identified and corrected.

Of course, there's the people engineering part of the equation as well. My company has been really lagging in internal IPv6 capabilities. This IPv6 day has got management riled up to the point that they're all suddenly screaming for it. Technology companies hate to be seen as laggards.
