Danni collaterali del filtraggio di Internet (Financial Times)

Anti-piracy drive sees Premier League mistakenly block websites – FT.com.

The
Premier League’s battle against copyright infringing websites went
badly wrong this week when it mistakenly caused UK internet providers to
block hundreds of unrelated websites, including those of Blackburn
Rovers and the Radio Times.

Ahead of the new football season’s kick-off on Saturday, the Premier League last month won a court order
to prevent British internet users accessing First Row Sports, a Swedish
website offering video streams of football games around the world.

But
in its attempt to block the pirate site, the Premier League mistakenly
asked the UK’s six biggest internet service providers – including BT, Virgin Media and Sky – to block an internet protocol address that is used by hundreds of other companies.

The blunder shows how the UK’s move towards court-enforced web blocking can have unintended consequences for online businesses and web users.
