Elisa, one of the largest internet service providers in Finland, has been forced to block access to The PirateBay for its customers. Elisa issued a press release (in Finnish) on the matter moments ago. The decision was given by a local district court in Helsinki. Elisa has stated that they will seek correction to the decision in supreme court. As of today, all Elisa and Saunalahti (part of the same group) customers will be denied access to ThePirateBay on an operator level, meaning they have denied access to the servers in their name servers.

These attempts to stop internet freedom is futile. They can always be circumvented by using proxies, or programs such as Ultrasurf (which is normally used to circumvent the great firewall of china)
The sad thing is lawmakers are wasting billions fighting technology.
It is a futile battle, doomed to fail.edit on 9-1-2012 by NeoVain because: (no reason given)
