Submission + - Telecomix Offers Help Against Belgium Censors

bs0d3 writes: Today a court ruling in Belgium over-ruled an earlier court ruling and is ordering an isp to block thepiratebay. It's been announced that the type of block to be used by the isp is a simple DNS filter which is similar to ones used before in Denmark. In Denmark, the dns block was extremly easy to circumvent and the attention to thepiratebay actually increased Danish site traffic after the block. Today an hacktivist group called telecomix; which is more recently known for helping to establish communications during the internet blackout in Egypt, is offering their help. Their custom made "censorship proof" dns service is designed for situations just like this. ISP customers facing a block can simply use telecomix's dns server instead of the isp provided one to access blocked sites such as thepiratebay.
