On behalf of the team

On 7 April 2021, Stichting Brein summoned Ziggo BV, XS4ALL Internet BV and KPN B.V. (the “providers“) to appear in court. The case follows from the judgment in preliminary relief proceedings of Midden-Nederland District Court of 8 October 2020, which led to the extension of the blockade of The Pirate Bay to the (sub)domains of mirrors and proxies through which The Pirate Bay is available. Through this summons, the blockade imposed on mirrors and proxies is now also sought in the proceedings on the merits.[1]

The providers had to appear before Midden-Nederland District Court on 6 October 2021
