STEF Demands All ISPs Block Torrent Sites

Published October 20, 2014

This morning, the collective rights management society STEF, demanded responses from ISPs Síminn, Tal and 365, as to whether the companies will block their users’ access to the sharing sites Piratebay and its now non-existing local counterpart, deildu.net. This was reported by RÚV. STEF has demanded a response before Wednesday, threatening legal action.

As reported, earlier this month, the Reykjavík District court ruled in favor of STEF’s demands in the case of two other ISPs, which were ordered to block their customers’ access to the torrent sites. Within a day after the ruling, which specifies the URLs to be blocked, Deildu.net reopened its services at another URL, with the domain ending .pm, which belongs to the miniscule autonomic region Saint Pierre and Miquelon, to which the verdict does not apply.
