Dutch MSO Ziggo has appealed a court order that it restricts access to the Pirate Bay website, which facilitates file-sharing of TV and movie content. The cabler was told this week that if it did not block users from the site within ten days, it faced a fine of up to €250,000.
Ziggo said that it opposed the illegal downloading of content, but that restricting access to certain websites was potentially the start of a slippery slope. ISP XS4All is also subject to the court ruling and is appealing alongside Ziggo.
