Afaik that is only in Holland.

It is Stichting Brein in holland that is bringing al lthe providers to court in order to have them block piratebay.

A couple of them are already doing it and now UPC was ordered to do the same.
Cant see it enforced here as it was a Dutch court decision

It's being DDOS'd, most likely by anonymous for speaking out against them. the piratebay said that DOSing was a form of censorship they didn't encourage

It says that some of the proxies are working

It's fine from UK, just not from UPC here. Hmm... Doesn't affect me really tbh, and the proxies are still fine, but I would be disappointed if it was the beginning of censored web experience by UPC.
Hopefully it is just a DDOS attack. Strange it's only affecting some ISPs though no...

I can still use PirateRay.com to access Pirate Bay, so SSH tunneling and proxy works fine to bypass any possible blocking.

working fine for me here on UPC in Dublin so it's definitely not blocked.

oh, and in before the lock.
