Dutch Internet providers to Block Pirate Bay


A Dutch court Wednesday ordered two Internet providers to block their clients from accessing The Pirate Bay, citing copyright concerns.

"Internet providers Ziggo and XS4ALL must block their customers from accessing The Pirate Bay website," The Hague district court said.

The case was brought by the the Brein foundation, a trade body representing the Dutch recording industry, which said the website allowed rampant filesharing without authors' consent.

The owners of The Pirate Bay owners have repeatedly appeared in court in the Netherlands and in Sweden, where they have been sentenced for promoting copyright infringements by running the site.

The Hague court said about 30 percent of Ziggo's clients and 4.5 percent of XS4ALL's customers recently swapped music, movies or games on The Pirate Bay website.
