In the past few hours, numerous reports of torrent sites and video sharing sites being blocked and inaccessible by Indian users have been doing the rounds of the Net. Torrent sites including Isohunt.com, thepiratebay.se, torrentz.eu, kat.ph etc and video sharing sites like DailyMotion.com and Vimeo.com have been blocked.
I happened to stumble across the original court order sent to 15 Indian ISPs and a person named “Ashok Kumar”. The list of service providers include big players like Airtel, BSNL, MTNL, Aircel and Vodafone.
The document further reads that the blocking is to prevent the piracy of copyrighted content from the movie “3” (Kolavari Di is one of it’s track).
Read the complete document below.
