BT has become the UK’s final major Internet service provider to block The Pirate Bay, following a high court order for ISPs to censor the torrent-sharing site.
In April 2012, the British High Court forced six major providers to block access to the website. BT asked for more time to respond to the court order, and evaluate the implications of setting up the blockade. It has now complied with the court order, and BT users with a taste for torrents will be redirected to a notice from the British Phonographic Industry.
According the Pirate Party UK, BT also blocked the additional addresses added by the Pirate Bay in response to the block in recent weeks. However, “within minutes of the block being put in place, the Pirate Bay made additional addresses available to circumvent the block.”
