Given the lively debate on this, may as well have a poll

I think the police have up to around 5 or 6 o'clock to charge or release Mo. the social media campaigners know as much as we do. Stories starting to come out about missing family members mostly from Vietnam

VAR again causes controversy, I thought it was brought in for clear and obvious decisions.  The Matta not goal was by a knee, the decision in the furs game tonigh was also well dodgy. Will it causd more problems than it will solve.
General discussion / The Pirate Bay

not that anyone here down load illegally, but for interest sake.

from the BBC

File-sharing site The Pirate Bay must be blocked by UK internet service providers, the High Court has ruled.

The Swedish website hosts links to download mostly-pirated free music and video.

Sky, Everything Everywhere, TalkTalk, O2 and Virgin Media must all prevent their users from accessing the site.

"Sites like The Pirate Bay destroy jobs in the UK and undermine investment in new British artists," the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) said.

The BPI's chief executive Geoff Taylor said: "The High Court has confirmed that The Pirate Bay infringes copyright on a massive scale.

"Its operators line their pockets by commercially exploiting music and other creative works without paying a penny to the people who created them.

"This is wrong - musicians, sound engineers and video editors deserve to be paid for their work just like everyone else."

'Compelling alternatives'

In November 2011, the BPI asked the group of ISPs to voluntarily block access to the site.

The request followed a court order to block Newzbin 2, a site also offering links to download pirated material.

The ISPs said they would not block the site unless a court order was made, as is now the case.

Virgin Media told the BBC they will now comply with the request, but warned such measures are, in the long term, only part of the solution.

"As a responsible ISP, Virgin Media complies with court orders addressed to the company but strongly believes that changing consumer behaviour to tackle copyright infringement also needs compelling legal alternatives, such as our agreement with Spotify, to give consumers access to great content at the right price."

The Pirate Bay was launched in 2003 by a group of friends from Sweden and rapidly became one of the most famous file-sharing sites on the web.

It allows users to search for and access copyrighted content including movies, games and TV shows.

In April 2009, the Swedish courts found the four founders of the site guilty of helping people circumvent copyright controls.

The ruling was upheld after an appeal in 2010, but the site continues to function.

Now one of my favourite comedies ever. took me a few episodes to get into it well worth the wait. Jim Parsons who plays Sheldon is outstanding in it.

no idea what the hell they are talking about half the time but that adds to the comedy value.

repeats on E4, give them a go you wont regret it
