Loz Kaye, the leader of Pirate Party UK, said the BPI was "out of control."

"The British music industry has nothing positive to show from their site blocks and personal legal threats," he said.

"Looking at sales figures from 2012, you can't draw the conclusion that stopping access to the Pirate Bay did anything to help artists."

"The United Kingdom has now handed the power over what we see on the Internet to corporate lobbyists," he said.
