Hague court does not demand ban on open proxies

Wednesday 18 April 2012 | 09:55 CET | News
A Hague court has allowed the Dutch Pirate Party to make a general use of open proxies, nu.nl reported. Dutch anti-piracy group Brein demanded a blanket ban, following a win on 13 April on one particular proxy directing visitors to The Pirate Bay domain. The Pirate Party was told to remove the proxy. Following on that, Brein requested a ban on an open proxy that can also be used for accessing The Pirate Bay. No general ban has been ordered in this fast track procedure. The ban could reappear in regular court proceedings.
