On 18 January 2012, a Dutch district court ruled that two internet access providers, Ziggo & XS4ALL, have to block customers’ access to the IP-addresses and (sub)domains of The Pirate Bay. The providers will appeal the ruling of the District Court of The Hague. This article comments on the ruling in Dutch. An abridged version of the case note in English can be found on the Kluwer Copyright Blog.
