"Sci-Hub’s founder, has previously told The Scientist the site plans to
ignore the lawsuit.” How would Sci-Hub consider this a “fix”?

What enforcement mechanism would the Court have against Sci-Hub?

The idea of making third parties (ISPs) incur costs (updating ACLs or
poisoning DNS) to enforce the order is pretty bad, and doesn’t stop Tor
access. Sorry I didn’t have a chance to file an amicus before the ruling
tomorrow.
