    It's crazy, soon enough they will start blocking genuine sites.

    On the other hand there will be a new market to make money of off.

    I should also mention that domain blocking doesn't do much and I am sure that some of these sites have already let their members know of another way to access the sites....

    Why did the ISP's decide to give up fighting the movie companies in court?

    Yes a VPN will allow people to get around the banned sites.

    They couldn't care less as long as they keep making money. What does it bother them? Maybe they even get paid to do so. lol

    So could customers challenge them in court by filing suit against the media companies in a class action way.

    No doubt they could. But who is actually going to bother? How many of those that this affects are actually the type of people that would go and challenge such a case? It's easier for most just to find ways around it rather than challenge their ISP's.
