Yahoo to raise Olympic presence

Yahoo plans to double its Olympics presence this summer, aiming to be the top website for the fourth straight Games. Yahoo is sending 25 people from around the world to cover the Summer Games in London — about “twice as big” as it had in the Winter Games — including U.S. gold medal winners Shannon Miller and Dan O'Brien and many of its sports columnists and reporters. It also plans to cover the games in dozens of languages.

British battling PirateBay

Britain's High Court has ordered the country's Internet service providers to block file-sharing website The PirateBay, the U.K.'s main music industry association said Monday. High Court Judge Richard Arnold told Sky, Everything Everywhere, TalkTalk, O2 and Virgin Media on Friday to prevent access to the Swedish site, which helps millions of people download copyrighted music, movies and computer games. Music industry group BPI welcomed the order that service providers block the site in coming weeks.
