..easy: 0, hide the mirrors behind some sort of vpn registry site link.
Blame it all on EU's new corrupt totalitarian rule.
..I am not aware of any attempt to make peace with "Islamic" war
parties other than Donald J. Trump's Afghanistan "disengagement",
nor of any Article 89 - Co-operation, nor of any Article 88 - Mutual
assistance in criminal matters, nor of any Article 90 - International
Fact-Finding Commission hearings, probably because that would place
onto somebody, under Article 91 - Responsibility, exactly that.
We (NATO) "therefore remain at war with" "Islam" despite "this
Norway's police also helped Hitler get our Jews to Auschwitz.
..calling for referendums on kicking Norway out of the EEA and
out of Interpol, is an excellent way of getting the attention
all these matters require.
..2, on each mirror website, also set up and organise referendums
on leaving the EU, Brexit style.
..3, set up payment boycotts on power, gas, water, district heat etc
to demand full documentation on the software (aka "firmware") licenses
in those power, gas, water, district heat etc meters.
..my current understanding is, many of these meters run pirated Linux
and/or Busybox, in violation of the GPL. If these meters are behind
locked doors on property you have or have had lawful custody of thru
lawful ownership, rental contracts, loans, housesitting for a friend
or relative, or have had the keys to to water the flowers for a
neighbor, etc, etc, you too may find yourselves in violation of the
GPL if you ever give up custody to the keys to such property after
e.g. watering the flowers for your livid neighbor. Or landlord...
..did the EU really intend to introduce Soviet style propiska, or
reintroduce EUropean feudal serfdom, with this, er, legislation?
..this new sneaky EU rule making may be EU's attempt to cover up
this software piracy corruption.
..the EU can make EU utilities who use such power, gas, water,
district heat etc meters to collect payment etc, etc, document
their software (aka "firmware") licenses or contracts (aka "license
agreement") in those power, gas, water,district heat etc meters,
_if_ they wanna convince me (and us?) otherwise.
EU, expect http://groklaw.net/ style scrutiny. ;o)

Scenarios always come in sets of three:
best case, worst case, and just in case.
