Italy May Censor Torrent Sites

An anonymous reader writes “Following a Pirate Bay block more than a year ago, Italy continues its attempts to censor torrent sites. The Italian Supreme Court has ruled that copyright holders can now force ISPs to block BitTorrent sites, even if they are hosted outside Italy. The torrent sites which ‘hold’ copyrighted materials are accused of taking part in criminal activity. It seems someone should enlighten Italian jurists about technology.”
