Blog Entry Delhi High Court Orders Blocking of Websites after Sony Complains Infringement of 2014 FIFA World Cup Telecast Rights
by Anubha Sinha published Jul 08, 2014 last modified Jul 08, 2014 07:02 AM — filed under: , , ,
Of late the Indian judiciary has been issuing John Doe orders to block websites, most recently in Multi Screen Media v. Sunit Singh and Others. The order mandated blocking of 472 websites, out of which approximately 267 websites were blocked as on July 7, 2014. This trend is an extremely dangerous one because it encourages flagrant censorship by intermediaries based on a judicial order which does not provide for specific blocking of a URL, instead provides for blocking of the entire website.

However, the reasoning behind blocking domain marketplaces such as the above mentioned sites is not clear.
