Accessing Torrent Sites Blocked in the UK? Piratebay.org - Kat.ph - H33T - Fenopy - BT - BskyB - o2 - TalkTalk - EE

http tunnel

So the high courts have ordered the UK's internet service providers to block access to torrent sites!

The court order was due to nine publishers, and was led by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), they quoted section 97a of the copyright, patents, and design act. and requested that BT, O2, Sky BB, EE and TalkTalk to block users from accessing these torrent sites.

Even though ISP's have been ordered by the high courts, none of them protested against the order.

Blocking started on the 22nd of March, and many more ISP's have started to follow.

Well... This is unfair to other legitimate users of torrent sites (and there are some, not everybody is downloading illegally using torrents).

Please tell us what you think in the comments!!
Is there a better way to stop illegal downloading?
Have you found another torrent site that has been blocked?
Are other ISP's blocking torrent sites?

The most annoying thing is that all of the illegal downloaders who sell dodgy DVD's will most likely already be bypassing these blocks. Only small downloaders or inexperienced downloaders will be affected (most of these users are legally downloading), which makes the whole thing seem pointless!

So I will show you how you can still access these sites if you wish.

Now torrents can not be stopped or blocked by ISP's (reason is that you are sharing directly with other users 'peer to peer'), but the sites that have the torrents can be blocked. I don't see how blocking these sites is the way, as this will force new sites to host torrents and the whole process will start again.

Anyway! to get access if you have been blocked:

A few methods of accessing these sites, most of them use proxies to bypass your ISP or any server!!
Easiest method is to use a site called http://come.in (this will bypass for you, but may get blocked in the future) Use a premium proxy service like Proxify
Or you can Google free proxy sites and use them to visit blocked sites (but some are filled with adverts and can be a lot slower)
Or you can setup your browser to use proxies, for instructions to do this please Google 'setup browser to use proxy'
Or you could create your own proxy site, download the script for free from http://glype.com (Simple to install, and if others use it you may even be able to make money from you newly created site, please note that most web hosting companies do not allow you to have these sites)
