Can an EU court order that ISPs block access to domain?
Authored by: Wol on Thursday, November 01 2012 @ 05:51 PM EDT
Just order LINX and MINX to intercept and override DNS requests for Apple.

Who cares about technical users who can circumvent such tricks. The general
populace (the target for Apple's shenanigans) will get directed to the judicial
page. The people who know how to get to Apple are the people who either (a) can
see through Apple's tricks, or (b) are so influenced by the RDF that they won't
be able to see the judicial notice even when it's staring them in the face.

Anyways, as others have pointed out, one Judge has already threatened Apple's UK
head honcho. If he's a Brit, and he's been told about it, he will be bricking
himself.

A jail sentence is likely to be far more effective than trying to hijack the
Apple website. After all, a jail sentence will probably hit most dead-tree front
pages in Britain, and probably a fair few other countries as well.

Cheers,
Wol

If Apple own the complete 17.0.0.0/8 block then it would be easy to just drop
all traffic to and from this address group. This might or might not kill the
apple.com or apple.co.uk pages but would cause severe difficulties for Apple.
