Blocking Newzbin2 paves the way for internet censorship

The court decision to allow BT to block the 'pirate' site means Hollywood is dictating our internet policy.

In a significant test case brought by six major Hollywood studios, the UK's high court has forced BT to block access for its customers to the so-called "pirate" site Newzbin2. This was hailed as a victory for the creative industries. But it was a defeat for the web and British freedom of expression. We now have the tools for state-supported censorship of the internet.
