Maybe not yet, but after reading this article in the Irish Times it appears that Eircom at least have agreed to block access to sites like PirateBay.org

In a legal letter sent to all Irish ISPs on behalf of EMI, it looks for a “graduated response” to the copyright infringement by the service providers.

So what does this mean for the future of Irish Internet users, an Internet with selected websites only?

If EMI can get such an agreement put in place with all the ISPs, it opens possible flood gates of other organisations who would like such sites banned. What next? No access to YouTube???
