On the 30th April 2012 the high court ruled that UK internet service providers Sky, Everything Everywhere, TalkTalk, Telefonica O2 and Virgin Media must all prevent their users from accessing The Pirate Bay. BT, the sixth internet service provider, requested more time to consider their position on blocking the site.
Unfortunately the chief executive of the British Phonographic Industry, Geoff Taylor, said "The High Court has confirmed that The Pirate Bay infringes copyright on a massive scale." however as everyone knows there is no illegal content stored on The Pirate Bay's servers, or indeed our server, as it is all stored on the peer-to-peer network.
Censorship is not the way forward. Circumvention is inevitable due to the nature of the internet. Why should you let corporate interests decide what you can and can't see?
On Wednesday 2nd May Virgin Media implemented their block. On Wednesday 9th May the ISP Everything Everywhere that owns Orange UK implemented their block.
This site was set up to ensure continual access to The Pirate Bay without interruption that the ISP blocks will put in place. The site is exactly the same as The Pirate Bay, we are not mirroring their content, instead we are relaying your requests through our server to The Pirate Bay's real servers in Sweden. We are interested to see whether ISPs will stop routing traffic to The Pirate Bay's IP addresses, or whether they'll transparently proxy traffic to an error page, or perhaps if they haven't even thought it through, poison their DNS servers.
We're currently managed by Torrenticity, an organisation that manages a number of the world's biggest torrent proxy sites. Our proxies serve millions of people each month, and we're proud to be leading the way against censorship of these torrent sites by providing easy access.
Don't forget we also proxy torrentz.eu at torrentz.piratereverse.info, isoHunt.com at isohunt.piratereverse.info, BTscene.eu at btscene.piratereverse.info, extratorrent.com at extratorrent.piratereverse.info, KickassTorrents at kickassunblock.info, and H33T at h33tunblock.info. We'll be adding more popular torrent sites shortly.
