Legal Since The Pirate Bay blockade (which is easily circumvented) has just been extended to all other ISPs in The Netherlands (logically, court orders fall outside net neutrality), here's a link to a landing page which automatically redirects Dutch visitors to a valid The Pirate Bay proxy, circumventing the blockade. The more resourceful among us can always alter their hosts file, add a redirect in their router software, change DNS servers (any pros and cons from people who actually do this?), and about a gazillion other things. The Dutch copyright lobby's next step? Blocking websites that detail how to circumvent the blockade. Hey Kuik, we're right here!

the only thing that made me move back to my ISP's dns was that Alkami and other download sites wouldn't understand which country i was in and would set me to american, so downloads were really slow as they didn't push me to a local mirror. I also noticed that updates for Windows + Mac OSX would be a lot slower probably as they use Alkami as they're backbone for updates/downloads?
