    I've quite a mastery of the humorous yarn.
    For example, do any of you know the tale of how cornmeal came to be?

    Now, who here likes a good story about a bridge?

    Sky are now blocking Newzbin2 after receiving a court order last week...

    Sky is a business which has invested billions of pounds in content for its customers. We do this because we know how much our customers value high-quality content. It’s therefore imperative that companies like Sky do what they can, alongside Government and the rest of the media and technology industries, to help content companies protect their copyright. Such protection will ensure that consumers continue to benefit from TV programmes, movies and music both now and in the future. This means taking effective action against online piracy and copyright theft.

    Increasingly content owners are turning to the courts to present evidence of copyright theft by those websites who offer content illegally to users. When they do so, and the court agrees that copyright theft has occurred, content owners can seek a court order which can compel internet service providers (ISPs) to block access to those sites over their broadband networks.

    This happened with a website called Newzbin2. We have received a court order requiring us to block access to this illegal website, which we did on 13th December, 2011. Moving forward, as and when clear and legally robust evidence of copyright theft is presented, we will take appropriate action in respect to site blocking, which will include complying with court orders.

    They took down napster/limewire/thepiratebay/nzb sites and where are we now?

    As this guy proved - How Louis CK won the Internet - Jesse Brown - Macleans.ca

    The fat cats are panicking that their time is numbered and are scrabbling to line their pockets one last time
