Irish ISP Eircom will block Pirate Bay from September

Based on article from torrentfreak.com

Eire Cum
This week the music industry sent an email to several Internet providers in Ireland, asking the companies to block their users’ access to The Pirate Bay or face legal action.

In a response to this request, Eircom said it would agree and the ISP will block customers access to the Pirate Bay starting September 1st.

Thus far Eircom is the only ISP that has caved in to the threatening letter. UPC and BT Ireland – two other local ISPs – explicitly denied the request from the music industry and said they would rather fight the issue out in court.

UPC has informed the rights holders that there is no basis under Irish law requiring an ISP to block access to certain websites and that it will not agree to a request that goes beyond what is currently provided for under Irish law, UPC said in a statement. Should the rights holders proceed with their threat of legal action if UPC fails to block access to Pirate Bay, UPC has every intention of vigorously defending its position in Court.

Oh dear!!!

Hopefully a huge migration of customers from eircom then!!!

this is ridiculous. Surely all that needs to happen is The Pirate Bay set up a seperate site for Eirecom customers?
