      I wish I could have heard the telephone conversation between the MPA and Rupert
      Rupert has nothing to do with the day to day running of Sky, in fact he is not even a Director.

      Perhaps this article will help, it was cross posted on this forum at the time:

      BBC News - Sky, Virgin Media asked to block piracy site Newzbin2

      Sky, Virgin Media asked to block piracy site Newzbin2

      Virgin Media, Sky and TalkTalk have been asked to block access to Newzbin2, a members-only group which provides links to pirated films and music.

      BT has already barred its customers from accessing the site, following a court case brought by the Motion Picture Association.

      The MPA is now extending its net in a UK-wide crackdown on piracy.

      TalkTalk said it was "considering its response". Sky and Virgin Media signalled they would obey court orders...
      It is also worth pointing out that there are occasions where such court orders are made and the complainant cannot be named.
