Submission + - Pirateparty wins courtcase agains Brein (activepolitic.com)

CAPSLOCK2000 writes: The Dutch Pirateparty (PPNL) just won a court-case against Brein. Last week Brein got a court to issue an emergency order to take down a reverse-proxy to The Piratebay. The next day Brein claimed the court order also included a generic proxy also ran by PPNL and any other service that might lead to TPB (aka hyperlinks). PPNL responded with a emergency lawsuit of their own, asking for a literal interpretation of the verdict instead of Breins broad reading. The judge acknowledged the narrow interpretation of the verdict. proxy.piratenpartij.nl stays up and tpb.piratenpartij.nl now sports a list of other ways to reach The Piratebay. Due to the Streisand effect this list has grown to a considerable length. Noteworthy is that it The Pirateparty got favorable verdict in a single day, a first in Dutch law.
