The CEO of the IFPI in Austria has been defending his group's attempts to have The Pirate Bay and other torrent sites blocked by local ISPs. Franz Medwenitsch says that using the word "blocking" in these situations is wrong and defending copyright by disabling access to websites does not amount to censorship.

Avi Lerner, CEO of the company behind The Expendables 3, says that the online leak of the movie cost his business $250 million. “Within five years, we’re not going to have a business," the Nu Image CEO said, adding that President Obama doesn't want to pass "simple" anti-piracy laws because he's scared of Google and the ISPs.
