Submission + - One of the largest ISP in Finland ordered to block (elisa.fi)

An anonymous reader writes: The district court in Finland has ordered Elisa, one of the largest Finnish ISPs to block access to the Pirate Bay IP addressess and domain name or else they're getting a fine. Elisa is going to complain about the decision. Elisa says that the decision is so complex and difficult, so it's important to get a decision from a higher court.

If I am unable to tell the 112 operator where I am, will the emergency services be able to locate me? If so, how quickly?
  * Yes, immediately for mobile calls and from 2 to 10 seconds for fixed calls.
