• On October 26, 2011, the United Kingdom’s High Court, Chancery Division ruled that British Telecom has two weeks to implement an order requiring it to block its customers’ access to Newzbin2, a file-sharing site against which six Hollywood studios (Studios) have secured an injunction. The court held, over BT’s objections, that BT must bear the cost of compliance with the order, and that BT will receive no indemnity protection from the Studios should the blocking lead to financial harm in other areas, such as retaliatory hacking. In addition, BT was ordered to pay all legal fees that it and the Studios incurred in litigating the matter. The court acknowledged that this framework was expected to apply to the Studios’ forthcoming challenges to the country’s other ISPs. Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp. v. British Telecomms.
