Blog Entry Super Cassettes v. MySpace (Redux)
by Anubha Sinha published Jan 16, 2017 last modified Jan 18, 2017 02:31 PM — filed under: , , ,
The latest judgment in the matter of Super Cassettes v. MySpace is a landmark and progressive ruling, which strengthens the safe harbor immunity enjoyed by Internet intermediaries in India. It interprets the provisions of the IT Act, 2000 and the Copyright Act, 1957 to restore safe harbor immunity to intermediaries even in the case of copyright claims.

CIS was one of the intervenors in the case, and has been duly acknowledged in the judgment.
