Si incomincia con mettere un lucchetto

Geek   10.08.08  

Stai sorseggiando un margarita davanti ad un'assolata spiaggia sotto fronde di palma ed ecco che, mentre hai la testa altrove, a qualcuno viene la brillante idea creare un paio di paletti e limitazioni al libero accesso alla rete.
La scusa è sempre la stessa, violazione del copyright.

Lo Stato che decide cosa far vedere e cosa no.
E non si parla di Cina, ma del nostro Bel Paese.

Per fare pratica hanno iniziato con l'impedire l'accesso a The Pirate Bay.
Non in maniera così efficace, perché c'è già il modo per aggirare l'ostacolo. Siamo in Italia d'altronde, ma intanto...

Qui l'annuncio di The Pirate Bay:

Fascist state censors Pirate Bay

We're quite used to fascist countries not allowing freedom of speech. A lot of smaller nations that have dictators decide to block our site since we can help spread information that could be harmful to the dictators.

This time it's Italy. They suffer from a really bad background as one of the IFPIs was formed in Italy during the fascist years and now they have a fascist leader in the country, Silvio Berlusconi. Berlusconi is also the most powerful person in Italian media owning a lot of companies that compete with The Pirate Bay and he would like to stay that way - so one of his lackeys, Giancarlo Mancusi, ordered a shutdown of our domain name and IP in Italy to make it hard to not support Berlusconis empire.

We have had fights previously in Italy, recently with our successful art installation where we had to storm Fortezza in order to get our art done. And as usual, we won. We will also win this time.

We have already changed IP for the website - that makes it work for half the ISPs again. And we want you all to inform your italian friends to switch their DNS to OpenDNS so they can bypass their ISPs filters. This will also let them bypass the other filters installed by the Italian government, as a bonus. And for the meanwhile - http://labaia.org works (La Baia means The Bay in Italian).
