it DOES work. Blocking casual easy piracy is the key. Blocking stuff by making people take weird routes, makes it harder and that is ALL that counts.
Don't get me wrong I'm all for any legitimate efforts.
As a newsgroups user for legitimate uses I can assure you no one will ever stop binsearch and newsgroups where files get shared with frightening ease.
They are fragmented so someone like BT will not know what your downloading.
Encrypted downloads also take care of this big brother action.
So no Nacroman it won't work I'm afraid.
And for the record why should porn take it in the neck?
There's nothing wrong with legal erotica.
Then you are missing the point. It's not a "source " block - it's "banned from entering an illegal ISP". It works. It just has to be maintained. BT not knowing what you're downloading? They don't need to. They just ban any sites promoting and linking to illegal material. That simple, They do it already in Denmark and it's worked very well.
Legal porn? Why would you block that?
Newsgroups? no longer the biggest source of piracy. Not by a long long way. The biggest sources are the straight in the face operational promo websites. As said above - doing nothing is stupid.
