Congratulations, IFPI

You’ve fucked up again.

Eircom has agreed to block access to The Pirate Bay as of 1 September. Assuming the deal with GGF goes through, this will be approximately 1 week after the site becomes a ‘legal’ operation,* complete with the backing and ‘good will’ of the entertainment industry.**

If you were interested in doing anything other than protecting an outdated business model, you would leave the fuck alone.

* Legality of the current incarnation of TPB notwithstanding.

** Meaning, of course, that no-one will use it anymore, preferring to use any number of the clones which have (or will have) popped up as a result of a torrent of TPB’s content.
