, viemo, dailymotion and major torrent sites blocked in India

While looking for code of a very typical problem I navigated to url and to my surprise this site was also razed by DOT ( Department Of Telecommunication). is one of the popular websites among software developers to share source code and examples. Upon Googling I came to know that few more sites,, and all major torrent sites has been blocked by DOT because of .


These sites were banned after civil lawsuit filed by Copyright Labs to prevent copyright infringement of their upcoming movies. Banning torrent sites and illegal music download sites seems legitimate but, this act on  which is a popular bookmarking website and,, doesn’t seem properly thought through. This way they will end up banning everything and bring you back in 90’s. Who knows what's lined up ahead …. just wait and watch the “Dance of Democracy”.
