    Using an ISP to block a site is just ridiculous logic. What affect would that have? A few drops in the ocean of piracy. How hard would it be for a site to set up another mirror site not currently being blocked? Seems like this method of blocking is a losing battle.

    china doesnt ban p2p just political stuff that isnt same comparison

    will the list be freely available to see?
    performers actually are the last people to see money
    and majority of their revenue is from performances
    music sales are for management and producers etc...
    you can see why they want to protect their interest

    the music of today is total fail anyways music arent even produce or written by the artist majority of the time
    we are also bombarded with so many different music that it is not feasible to buy everything we like and the next best song would come around in a few weeks. Pretty poor investing in music that isnt versatile.

    Australia is going into a filtering problem too at ISP level.

    It's still censorship of one form another and I don't think it should be there, I think information should be freely posted to the internet and anyone else on the internet should be free to access that information.

    I'm anti-piracy, but this is a bit ****.
    Eircom monopolise the broadband market over here, so even if the other ISPs don't start taking it up the arse from the record labels we still don't have much choice.
    We can speak with our money and cancel our Eircom subscriptions, but there aren't many others to go to over here.
