Piracy

Grumbleduke writes “The UK Pirate Party has been forced to shut down its proxy of The Pirate Bay. The Party had been running the proxy since April, initially to support the Dutch Party’s efforts, then as a means of combating censorship after the BPI obtained uncontested court orders against the UK’s main ISPs to block the site across the UK. In a statement released through their lawyers, the Party cited the impossibly-high costs of legal action for their decision, but vowed to keep fighting for digital rights however they can.”
