Respite to Internet Censorship in India

    21 June 2012

    The Madras High Court in India has clarified an interim injunction they first granted in April regarding the filtering of websites carrying pirated content. For months there has been confusion as to the extent of this injunction, leading many to think that entire websites were to be blocked. However, the court clarified today that "only specific URLs carrying the pirated content can be blocked, not the entire website."
