The Pirate Bay Ordered To Block Dutch Users.
secmartin writes "In a totally unexpected ruling, a Dutch court has
decided that The Pirate Bay should block visitors from the Netherlands
within 10 days or face a fine of â‚¬30,000 per defendant per day. Peter
Sunde has already announced that he will appeal the ruling. Even though
the defendants sent a letter explaining that they were unable to come to
the hearing and provided arguments in their favor, these were ignored
by the judge because they failed to appear in his court. The full text of
the ruling was just published (in Dutch, PDF) by Peter Sunde, and
further coverage is available at Forbes."
