Pirates of the internet

The war on internet piracy is heating up now that the British High Court has unloaded its broadside against The Pirate Bay.

You’ve seen Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pan and the Pirates and perhaps even Muppets Treasure Island, but this latest piracy epic is set to trump them all.

It doesn’t feature ships, sails or cannons. There’s no giant squid, treasure maps or evil pirate captains. But it does feature computers and literally treasure chests worth of gold.

If you haven’t caught on by now, I’m talking about the internet piracy saga that is currently gripping the globe. If today’s ruling by the British High court for ISP’s to bar access to The Pirate Bay is any indication, the issue is beginning to heat up.
