Submission + - UK Newzbin2 block coming in 14 days or sooner (

jc79 writes: The High Court in London has told BT that it has only 14 days to implement a block on its customers accessing IP addresses and domains used by Newzbin2, a torrent site. The block will use the same Cleanfeed system that BT already uses to stop subscribers accessing known child porn sites listed by the IWF. This is the first instance in the UK of copyright infringing sites being blocked, a victory for the studios.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
