Dutch Pirate Party mustn’t lead to Bay site

May 11, 2012

The Netherlands’ Pirate Party has been ordered to stop publicising ways to circumvent blocks to The Pirate Bay. The ruling by a court in the Hague follows a complaint by the anti-piracy group Brein.

It had said that the political party was helping users overcome a previous ruling that had ordered two of the country’s biggest internet service providers to prohibit access to The Pirate Bay. A subsequent order instructed a further five ISPs to block access to the site

The court also upheld an order banning the Dutch Pirate Party from offering a proxy to let users obtain TPB’s links without directly visiting the file-sharing site’s pages.
