High Court Ordered ISP's To Block The Pirate Bay in U.K. 

Last month Microsoft has blocked Pirate Bay links in Windows Live Messenger, now the High Court ordered to strictly block Pirate Bay in U.K. Sky, Everything Everywhere, TalkTalk, O2 and Virgin Media and other ISP of UK must have to  prevent their users from accessing the site. A sixth ISP, BT, requested "a few more weeks" to consider their position on blocking the site. Pirate Bay is regarded as the world's largest bittorrent tracker & file shearing sites hosts links to download mostly pirated free music and video.
"Sites like The Pirate Bay destroy jobs in the UK and undermine investment in new British artists," the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) said. Chief executive of BPI Geoff Taylor said: "The High Court has confirmed that The Pirate Bay infringes copyright on a massive scale. Its operators line their pockets by commercially exploiting music and other creative works without paying a penny to the people who created them. 
"As a responsible ISP, Virgin Media complies with court orders addressed to the company but strongly believes that changing consumer behaviour to tackle copyright infringement also needs compelling legal alternatives, such as our agreement with Spotify, to give consumers access to great content at the right price." - said Virgin Media.
