Indian Court Not To Block Entire Websites, Halt For Internet Censorship

Hacker group Anonymous, back in mid-June hacked The Supreme Court of India and All India Congress websites over the internet censorship in the country with further hacking of filtering server used by Reliance communications. And, even over the top, had staged protests across 16 cities over the issue. The big news coming up right now is that the India has now allowed access to video and file-sharing sites, including The Pirate Bay, which was blocked earlier over the issue of Internet piracy.

Back in May, after the orders from Madras High Court, first Reliance Communications which had blocked video sharing sites Vimeo and DailyMotion, torrents sites, followed by Indian carrier Airtel blocked the same set of sites (as Reliance does) and along with that a large number of Torrent search sites.

I must say it’s a great victory against Internet Censorship.
