Silly show from IFPI

IFPI Norway is a bunch of movie and record-companies (mostly owned by foreigners) who demands that Telenor (one of Norways largest ISPs) close the access to The Pirate Bay. Telenor denies to do this but IFPI is now drawing them to court.

I have problems seeing the logic here. Firstly, why the mixup, ISPs can’t begin to close access to certain sites – isn’t that what their doing in China, Iran etc? Why can’t they close The Pirate Bay via court? Oh they have problems doing that? Why? Because The Pirate Bay don’t break the law? Well why can IFPI demand censor then?

Their demand is like.. What if I called my power company and said that I only wanted power from certain areas because the others aren’t environmental friendly? What do you think they would say?

What am I missing here? I don’t get it.

Once they take TPB, will they censor mininova, bittorrent and the other million tracker sites?

    Skummelt om isp-leverandørene stadig skal måtte sensurere og stenge av mer og mer for brukerne. Btw.. eier ikke staten fortsatt en stor del av aksjene i Telenor?

      Jo de har vel mist 34% tror jeg. Om jeg ikke tar helt feil.

      Ja tenk alle stedene de må sensurere da, mininova, bittorrent, frp.no etc etc. 😀 Det kan jo nesten bli litt morsomt..

    Er litt i seneste laget for de å ikke dite seg ut. De står med guffa langt oppover leggen og hele verden ser for noen grådige sniker de er som setter egen profitt over friheten vår.

    Som de sier over dammen, go die already.

    Og så bør de blokkere tilgangen til google og facebook. Kom igjen. Og så YouTube. Da begynner vi å snakke.
