Legal Every now and then you come across these news items that make just too much sense to be true. Earlier this year, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry threatened Norway's largest ISP, Telenor: block access to The Pirate Bay within 14 days, or face legal action. Telenor refused to comply - so it went to court. In what can only be seen as a major victory, the judge sided with Telenor.

Not that I care much for The Pirate Bay, (who has made the IFPI and others so pissed off they are likely to get governments even another reason for introducing more strict copyright-fascism, like in the recent ACTA laws and the three-strikes-and-your-off-the-net). But it would be ridiculous if the IFPI won this case. Telenor supplies the tubes.. They cant be put as a watchdog to the content of them .. Except in the case of the child porn filter that KRIPOS supplies in Norway.
