India is still the MPAA's and RIAA's dream for the US turned into reality

Continuing a recent trend, The Pirate Bay and other large BitTorrent sites are now being blocked by Internet providers in India. Visitors who try to access the sites are redirected to a banner which informs them that the Department of Telecommunications ordered a blackout. Torrent sites are not the only target, as the blockade also censors the video sharing site Vimeo, one of the largest communities of indie filmmakers.

According to growing reports from India, subscribers of several large Internet service providers can no longer access The Pirate Bay, KickAssTorrents, BitSnoop and several other BitTorrent sites. In what appears to be a Government-ordered blackout, the websites in question are all being blocked at the ISP level.

Interestingly, torrent sites are not the only target. A similar block is also restricting access to the popular video sharing platform Vimeo, a site mostly used by indie filmmakers to share their work.

While there has been no official announcement, the blockade is currently affecting users of several large internet providers including Reliance Communications and Zylog Wi5.

Instead of gaining access to the sites above, subscribers are redirected to a message claiming that the site is “blocked as per instructions from Department of Telecom.

And yet, they let DDD run free.

Talk about crimes against humanity.

we need our nerd friends to come up with a solution, whenever the government tries to block you from content a way is needed to avoid that block. Surely the internets has more talent than government.

TPB is nothing more than Google for torrents...Most of the torrents are from other sites....simply add a torrent finder to your browser and that should get you around a block...
remember to stay "legal" though.



".."=bullshit
All words in ".." are to be considered bullshit.
