Pirate Bay blocked in Denmark

March 2008


There was more good news for the record labels in Denmark. Following the news Swedish prosecutors last week charged four men behind The Pirate Bay, a Danish court¬†has now¬†ordered Internet Service Provider Tele2 to block access to the BitTorrent tracker, meaning anyone accessing the internet in Denmark via Tele2 will no longer be able access the Bay. It is believed that the ISP may appeal the order as, like many ISPs, it does not feel it is right for ISPs to police their members’ activities. Whilst Tele2 is only one of several ISPs in Denmark, the legal precedent could be extended to other internet providers, and beyond the Danish jurisdiction also – the Finnish division of the IFPI is reportedly already considering pursuing a similar order through the courts there.
