Submission + - UK ISPs to block The Pirate Bay (bbc.co.uk)

ehlo writes: "File-sharing site The Pirate Bay must be blocked by UK internet service providers, the High Court has ruled. Sky, Everything Everywhere, TalkTalk, O2 and Virgin Media must all prevent their users from accessing the site.

"Sites like The Pirate Bay destroy jobs in the UK and undermine investment in new British artists," the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) said.

The ISPs had previously stated that they would not block the site unless there was a court order mandating it. Now that this has been delivered, they have agreed to the ruling, as indeed they must."
