PIRATES FIND A NEW WEAPON

Every time the Motion Picture Association of America wins an overseas battle to force ISPs to block the Pirate Bay site, users find a way to elude the restriction. One of the most popular methods is to use a proxy site. But the website TorrentFreak.com noted on Monday that users of those proxy sites are unable to connect to the content they are looking for through search engines. But now that problem has been solved, too, Torrent Freak reports, with a Windows application called The Pirate Patch. Commented Torrent Freak: “Initiatives such as The Pirate Patch show that while these blockades may stop some people from accessing a site, the really determined have plenty of options.”
