These bans could be a good way to open up the markets again. Might be a positive side to it in the hard times.

The most likely effect will be to drive "ordinary people" towards an encrypted Internet, using some sort of anonymous browser. We'll go from government monitoring of plaintext traffic to having to fight people who encrypt all their traffic - and not simply through VPNs which are too easy to shut down and block in turn.

This is broadly what happened in Japan when they cracked down on P2P software.

Will they every be able to shut down the likes of Tor browser which give you a gateway to the dark web, the browsers themselves aren't doing anything illegal?

China have done this with some success, I think. This has forced their users to freenet which is a much harder proposition to block but is slow and a poor alternative to the mainstream internet.

Well they have done it... I just checked TPB a few mins ago and it is blocked by order of the Irish courts! I guess the media fascists have managed to have their way with the Irish ISP's.... I wonder what the members of IRMA would do if someone were to deny access to parts of the web to them? Cowards!!

I have vodafone broadband in work and piratebay is not blocked.

I have UPC at home and its blocked. I have to use an alternative address.

I am puzzled as how one works and one doesn't.

Only 6 ISP's had to block it, and I think Vodafone was one of them.

Your Vodafone Connection at work is probably a business one, or the computers at work could be running through a VPN, bypassing any blocks.

I just google Pirate bay and the first entry on the results page thePiratebay.sx was blocked
Fortunately the second result The Pirate bay unblocked wasn't blocked.

That was a terrifying 0.7 of a second. Damn you IRMA, damn you to hell!

Im still fine. Working fine without the usual workarounds required.

Its beyond pathetic these attempts to stop us viewing sites. They really ought to just give it a rest now.

Gas how they go to all this effort to block a site & all it takes is for us to click a link further down on google search results to access it.
