DoT Blocked Access to File Sharing Sites in India

DoT Blocked Access to File Sharing Sites in India

Department of Telecommunication (DoT) in India has blocked the access to file sharing portals, and now users of Reliance or Airtel broadband providers. When trying to access these websites, you will get a message that the domain is blocked by the Department of Telecommunication.

Reloading page will give the same result. Other Internet service providers follow the same policy, blocking access to RapidShare and other file hosting services. Among blocked services are also Sendspace, Mediafire, Depositfiles, Movshare, Hotfile, etc.

These websites have been blocked since Thursday, first users saw a standard error page when trying to enter them. Interesting that Rapidshare secured version is still working (via HTTPS).

All attempts to contact file sharing services representatives gave no results: no comments on this subject were given from either of companies. Other Internet providers with governmental financing, such as BSNL or MTNL haven’t banned file sharing services yet. The latest rumours claimed that DoT sent a notice to ban Sendspace, Rapidshare and Mediafire to all ISP operating in India with later banning the vast majority of file sharing services. This order should be executed in 15 days.

Currently some of the blocked services can be accessed by simple page reload, but they seem to be blocked permanently soon. It seems that DoT considers the solution of piracy problem in blocking the areas of sharing illegal content. However, blocking the existing file sharing services won’t solve this problem, as new websites of the same time will appear.

In the past DoT had the same experience with Savitha Babhi website that featured adult cartoons. After it was blocked, this event was highly discussed in media for a week, and after this the website author launched the service on the new domain. The news about old domain blocking made the service even more popular than it was before.

UPDATE: The newest information about file sharing website blocking revealed some fresh details. It seems to be a technical problem of ISPs. MTNL has already resolved it, and users of Airtel, Fivenet and Raliance also already have the access renewed.

There are no commentaries regarding file sharing websites blocking from either ISP companies or DoT. It is still unclear whether this was a failed attempt of DoT to stop illegal file sharing, or it was a technical problem indeed.
