The High Court has ruled that the UK's major Internet Service Providers (ISPs) will have to block access to the Pirate Bay file sharing website. But who is responsible for content on the Internet?
Nicholas Lansman of the Internet Service Providers Association, told the Today programme that ISPs do not want to be the "judge and jury" of what to look at online.
"Determined downloaders will be able to circumvent these blocks," he warned, calling for the introduction of other measures, such as educating young people about the need to pay for content.
Claire Perry MP welcomed the decision, saying that it showed what could be done when commercial pressure was brought to bear.
"We're not Burma or China, we want better protection that protects consumer choice," she said.
