A P2P Web site was blocked in Israel with practically no publicity

The httpshare.com P2P Web site was blocked by the three largest Israeli ISPs, yet this fact received no publicity in Israel and I found out about this only from Slashdot.
More details - in: IFPI gets Israeli ISPs to block Hebrew peer-to-peer site.
I found that technically, the blocking was accomplished by directing httpshare.com to 127.0.0.1.
My biggest shock is from the lack of publicity this blockage received inside Israel - none of the Internet news Web sites and no blogs, which I follow, mentioned this.

Never heard of that site before, plus it seems to be available as we speak… maybe it was a technical problem somewhere and not a block?
