The Pirate Bay says BT block already breached
Posted in: Online TV/Music at 21/06/2012 14:09
BT has joined other UK internet service providers (ISPs) in blocking access to The Pirate Bay, a ban the group says users have already circumvented.
TalkTalk, Sky, Virgin, O2 and Everything Everywhere have already cut off access to the site, which hosts links to pirated music and video.
A High Court ruling in April ordered ISPs to prevent users accessing the site.
BT customers attempting access receive the message: "Error - site blocked".
