Yeah it starts with TPB but were does it end?

Youtube for the first 3-4 years of it's life was mainly pirated material?
How about Google/Bing seen as they list any file on any file sharing site?

You can 'justify' blocking TPB any way you like but with the same logic I can also 'justify' blocking 100's of legitimate sites people use everyday. 


The justifiers appear :)

Your examples are not affected because their primary purpose is not for pirating, or , they are an extra logical step away from the actual infringer. 

The primary purpose of Youtube is not to download copyrighted material. Even better, youtube allow copyright holders to take-down material. 

The primary purpose of google is as a search engine, not to download illegal material . 

The primary purpose of piratebay (and many other torrent websites)  is to provide downloads of pirated material.




Censorship of the internet is unacceptable period!   TPB or anyone.

Bet if I looked on your computer you would not be so squeaky clean.




Now on Slingshot Better Network and it's better.
