Sky Access Blocked - crystal palace copyright infringement notice!

I'd read the news item about the mess they've made of blocking sites, but I've not seen this notice page before (not quite sure how I got there though as I was after cpc.co.uk)

Could this constitute libel against Crystal Palace assuming they are innocent, I wonder?

"cpfc.co.uk" = anagram of "cock up fc"
;)

It works if you stick "www." in front though :). Filtering.. clever clever stuff.

As before this is all related to the same EZTV linked issue as reported over the weekend. A lot of legitimate sites were caught out but Sky did say they'd resolved it.. we'll ask what's up.

Tried cpfc.co.uk just now and now get a crystal palace website instead of the Copyright infringement notice. Think I preferred the notice to be honest ;) - I wanted a 12v 50mm fan at the time and not football fans.


Sky really ought to reword that notice while there's a chance it could be shown in error though... http://blocked.nb.sky.com/?cpfc.co.uk

According to the BBC, a whole new website block cock-up is causing lots of problems.

The Premier League has obtained a court ruling to block a particular website, but are also blocking every other website using that server address. including the Radio Times!!!!

This is possibly good news, if a major website like the Radio Times can be taken down, perhaps people will sit up and pay attention to how stupid and badly implimented the website blocking has become.

Yes, apparently it's something called First Row Sports that the Premier League are upset about - and, of course, the man from the Radio Times is even more upset!
Good-oh. :smilet:

The theoretical block is so easy to get round that it's absolutely pointless anyway. Perhaps a few hundred subscribers to BT/Virgin/Sky/TalkTalk (whoever, the ones who have received the court order) should send the Premier League a screenshot of the First Row Sports front page with a message innocently asking "Is this the one you didn't want us to watch or have I misunderstood something?"
