IRMA Taking Irish ISPs To Court Again

Pirate Bay logoIRMA is taking several of the larger Irish ISPs to court – again.

This time round they’re having a go at UPC, Three, Imagine, Vodafone and Digiweb, according to a report in the Irish Times.

Yet again the legal battle centres around file-sharing and The Pirate Bay in particular.

UPC has consistently refused to block access to The Pirate Bay voluntarily, although Eircom have been doing so for the last couple of years.

We understand that all other ISPs joined to the proceedings similarly declined the request,” the company said.

“UPC can confirm, however, its position has not changed. As an ISP, our position is that ISPs should not on a voluntary basis decide what can or should be consumed by users. We believe such matters are for the Government or court to decide.”
