Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation & Ors v British Telecommunications plc, [2011] EWHC 1981.

Court Proceedings Edit

The High Court ordered that British Telecom block access to the infringing website Newsbin2. In its ruling the Court noted that British Telecom could rely upon technology it had implemented to block access to child pornography websites, and that the cost of implementing the order would therefore be "modest and proportionate."

With regard to "actual knowledge," the Court held that knowledge of specific individuals' infringing conduct was not required. Instead, knowledge of one or more persons using its service to infringe copyright is enough.
