Swedish ISP Telia Appeals Pirate Bay Blocking Order

Story :

Earlier this year, several major Hollywood studios including Disney, Universal Studios and Warner Bros, teamed up with Swedish movie outfits to expand the local Pirate Bay blockade.

After obtaining a blocking order against local Internet provider Bredbandsbolaget, the film companies wanted Telia, Sweden’s largest ISP, to follow suit.

Last week the film companies booked a major victory when the Swedish Patent and Market Court ordered Telia to block access to The Pirate Bay, Dreamfilm, Nyafilmer, and Fmovies.

The interim decision requires the ISP to start blocking the sites at the end of the month and is valid until the case is finalized. Telia is not happy with the decision, however, and today announced an appeal.
