"Neutrality" here we come :/
“The Pirate Bay is hosted on a different autonomous system (AS). LeaseWeb is not the host, and our client [NForce] is not hosting The Pirate Bay either. We are only the IP Transit supplier, or carrier of Internet traffic for a company that uses our carrier services,” Alex de Joode, Security Officer of Leaseweb told ISPam.
BREIN of course disagreed with Leaseweb’s position and demanded that Leaseweb’s client NForce stopped routing traffic to The Pirate Bay. And they succeeded. A few hours ago NForce disconnected The Pirate Bay and at the time of writing the site is inaccessible in most parts of the world, if not all.
“We summoned NForce to stop the routing and they complied,” BREIN director Tim Kuik said in a response.
This case is a rather unique one that sets a disturbing precedent. In fact, it’s the first time that an ISP that merely routes traffic has decided to disable access to a BitTorrent site. In theory this could make it very easy for BREIN to shut down hundreds of other BitTorrent sites that are routed through Dutch networks, if they can strike enough fear into carriers.

Numérama devrait pas tarder à "traduire" le post, c'est leur spécialité...
Of course...Update: The Pirate Bay crew told TorrentFreak that the site will be back online with 4 new transits tomorrow. The current downtime is not (only) related to the routing issue, but rather with the new hosting company. Everything should be back to normal soon.
