Can an EU court order that ISPs block access to domain?
Authored by: Anonymous on Thursday, November 01 2012 @ 03:55 PM EDT
Considering this from a technical point of view there are 3
ways to do this that I can think of

The first would be ordering the DNS servers to change where
apple.com links to some goverment run server which displays
that text. This could be worked around by using a DNS server
in a different country, or a proxy server that uses it's own
DNS outside of the UK/Europe

The second would be ordering ISPs to block traffic to the IP
addersses associated with apple.com, this could be worked
around with proxy servers that exist outside of the
UK/Europe

The third way would be to order ISPs to sniff all the
packets to see if they came from apple.com, this would need
an encrypted, out of country, proxy server to get around.

Considering it from a legal point of view, I don't think
they would dare to try the third, to much anti-privacy
issues and scary precedent. The first and second, maybe,
IANAL and am not sure if they would have the authority, but
even if they do I would rather they don't do so as doing so
would, once again, establish a precedent I consider
dangerous.

We don't really want the courts to start doing that.
