Is THIS the Real Reason they Blocked Pirate Bay?

    Pirate Bay to allow real-object downloads.

    The Pirate Bay, one of the world's most infamous online file-sharing sites, is now hosting a type of mock-up file that allows your 3D printer to create physical objects.

    ThePirateBay.org yesterday announced via its blog, first reported by GigaOM, that users can now search in a new category called "Physibles".

    Physibles, as the blog explains, are mock-up files that allow a 3D printer to create a physical object.

    Think about it. The blocking of Pirate Bay is about movies, music and games, but in the future we will be able to download or ''pirate'' just about anything from a Thorntons chocolate cake, to a Ferrari 458. Taking power & money away from the corporations that create these things.

    They are thinking ahead and want to have control of the internet before the internet controls them. It will be great and revolutionary for us, but horrible for them.

    I find it funny that corporations are unwilling to accept that capitalism, which led to their success, is a double edged blade, and can lead to their fall. The whole purpose of capitalism is survival of the fittest. These corporations are beginning to rig the scales to secure themselves a stronghold over various markets, and thus preventing us from reaching our full potential through technology, just because they think they have a right to make a profit.

    Nobody has a "right" to make money. They need to adapt to changes within the marketplace or die of incompetence.

    3D printers use plastic, don't they?

    And if you had the chocolate to make the cake, just munch it instead of bothering with the shape. Same thing, although you won't have the highly amusing (at least, to others) consequence of Thornton's suing you for shaping chocolate into their shape.

    I'm sorry but what? somehow the ink in the printer will turn to chocolate, or carbon fibre. So a 3d printer will put people out of business? whatever you're smoking... please share

    You can put food into the printer if you want a cake or a pizza, then switch the injectors to run on metal to print a Ferrari or a robot for example.

    Aye, they stopped me accessing pirate bay so I don't download a Ferrari in about 10,000 years time.

    Yep this is true. I'm on Virgin and I get this: http://my.virginmedia.com/site-blocked.html

    But pirate bay set up a proxy which works fine. As does the Dutch mirror site. In the last 2 hours i've downloaded 3 albums and a porno, so they wasted their time.
