Are you a criminal now? Users may get 3 years in jail for viewing torrent site, blocked URL in India

Why the downloaders are harassed. In the case of Great Grand Masti and
other films, it was leaked from the censor board. The viewing is allowed
to few people. In that case, it is very easy to catch hold of the
culprit at censor board. Why action has been not taken on censor board.
The action not taken states that it was deliberately leaked. Why the
sites are not blocked which make available each and every illegal thing
online. Harassing common man has become a practice which is not good.
Government has never tried to uproot the things from the ground itself.Saifur Mohsin 

If
this becomes a law, everyone is screwed–Corruption would significantly
increase. You could literally arrest anyone under this and fine them.
One could pay the ISP to add an entry that you visited a torrent site
even if you didn’t and then arrest you using that as a record. Very
convenient.

agle loksabha election mein “kamal
nahi khilega”. Internet and torrents are mostly used by young
generation, and if you study history of the world, no king or lord was
ever able to hold on to his crown for long after taking freedom from
young generation. Better start practising making tea again bcoz that’s
what “you know who” will be selling after next elections.

The
general people have become the best target for this govt. This country
is becoming a ban country..sense of freedom is getting lost gradually.
Your laws don’t work for rich and influentials, but all come heavily
when it is a simple man!

stupid move by the govt by imposing this barbarian law to the people.see you in next election

In India, most of the URLs and websites
were blocked using DNS-filtering. This means the DNS of the blocked site
was added to a list maintained by the internet service provider and
whenever a user tried connecting to that site, the DNS server of the
internet service provider would block that request. However, this was
easy to bypass as a lot of people started using - or were already using -
third-party DNS services such as those maintained by Google. It is also
ineffective if a site uses HTTPS or in other words encryption to secure
the network between the user’s computer and the site server.

But
in the last couple of years internet service providers, probably at the
request of government bodies, have invested lot more in bolstering the
mechanism through which they block websites. Indian government bodies
too, instead of relying on internet service providers that are many, has
started bring into play the big companies like Tata Communications and
Airtel that manage a number of internet gateways in India.

Are you a criminal now? Users may get 3 years in jail for viewing torrent site, blocked URL in India

Are you a criminal now? Users may get 3-yr in jail for viewing torrent site, blocked URL in India

Call
it the new Digital India. The Indian government, with the help of
internet service providers, and presumably under directives of court,
has banned thousands of websites and URLs in the last five odd years.
But until now if you somehow visited these “blocked URLs” all was fine.
However, now if you try to visit such URLs and view the information, you
may get three-year jail sentence as well as invite a fine of Rs 3 lakh.

This
is just for viewing a torrent file, or downloading a file from a host
that may have been banned in India, or even for viewing an image on a
file host like Imagebam. You don’t have to download a torrent file, and
then the actual videos or other files, which might have copyright. Just
accessing information under a blocked URL will land you in jail and
leave your bank account poorer by Rs 3 lakh.

If you visit such a URL, you will be shown the following warning.

“This
URL has been blocked under the instructions of the Competent Government
Authority or in compliance with the orders of a Court of competent
jurisdiction. Viewing, downloading, exhibiting or duplicating an illicit
copy of the contents under this URL is punishable as an offence under
the laws of India, including but not limited to under Sections 63, 63-A,
65 and 65-A of the Copyright Act, 1957 which prescribe imprisonment for
3 years and also fine of upto Rs. 3,00,000/-. Any person aggrieved by
any such blocking of this URL may contact at
urlblock@tatacommunications.com who will, within 48 hours, provide you
the details of relevant proceedings under which you can approach the
relevant High Court or Authority for redressal of your grievance”

This
is a change compared to the earlier message that users would encounter
on the blocked URLs in India. The earlier message would read that the
URL has been blocked at the direction of DoT. Of late, however, the
government bodies were not only experimenting in how to implement the
blocks but were also trying to figure what message to show to users.
Recently, the blocked URLs also gave out not reachable error without
specifying any message.

government bodies were not only experimenting in how to implement the
blocks but were also trying to figure what message to show to users.
Recently, the blocked URLs also gave out not reachable error without
specifying any message.




The latest warning message clearly implies
that the URL blocking is now happening at the internet gateways - in
this particular case for the example the gateway is seemingly managed by
Tata Communications - and that is more difficult to circumvent. The
connection on which this message was served is from MTNL. But the
message came from Tata Communications. We sent an email to Tata
Communications at the specified address to get more information but it
bounced back (see above).

While the message in itself is
ominous and surely must have been vetted by a government body, it is not
clear how it will be enforced. It doesn’t look possible that the
government will be monitoring the whole world wide web, looking for
people may access or try to access a blocked URL. It is also not clear
how, if someone does land in trouble for accessing a blocked URL in
India, will be prosecuted and what process will be followed.

Lack
of clarity on it as well as no prior information on something like this,
which may make, almost every web user in India a criminal, does
indicate that this is just a message and not any sort of official
government policy, which is going to be enforced. However, at the same,
it is also clear that the mere presence of this message to web users
mean that they may end up in trouble if a government body or cops do
decided to follow through on anything that they believe is an “offence
under the laws of India, including but not limited to under Sections 63,
63-A, 65 and 65-A of the Copyright Act, 1957″.

Blame it on John Doe

The
problem, for now, doesn’t seem to that India is moving to block half of
the internet through a policy the way China does. Instead, the issue is
likely due to the John Doe orders that Indian courts are issuing at the
regular interval at the request of content creators like Bollywood film
makers. The lawyers of film studios often approach courts ahead of a
movie’s release seeking preventive blocks on the URLs they compile in
the list.

Also Read: Torrentz.eu clone is up but 5 reasons why you should not use it

In
reality these lists are poorly compiled and often block is sought on
full websites just on the basis of whims and fancies. However, courts
have regularly issued orders in the favour of film studios in India.
These court orders are issued against John Doe or in other words an
unnamed entity that may indulge in piracy of the film.

Once this
order is issued, the copies of the order along with the list of URLs to
be blocked go to DoT, which them passes an order to internet service
providers to block these sites. The interesting bit here is that once a
URL is blocked it remains blocked, even years after the release of the
film.

Update: The new message that you may have started seeing on
the “blocked” URLs in India is possibly result of a recent court
directive. According to SpicyIP,
Bombay High Court recently asked internet service providers in India to
not just block URLs but also explain to users why the URLs are blocked
and possibly warn them of consequences of illegally accessing copyright
work.

The idea is to tell consumers that downloading a film
is illegal. The idea is to tell them that if they download a film, they
will face trouble. However, it seems that Tata, which in this case
allegedly came up with the wordings of the message, slipped. It came up
with a message that is incredibly poorly worded and the intend to convey
something more than what was implied. The message not only implies that
you may get in trouble if you download a film but may also face the law
if you just manage to access that URL and “view” the content of the
URL.

As of now, it is clear that you may land up in jail —
or at least in trouble — if someone pushes for it. Now, it is possible
whatever charges you face if you visit a blocked may not hold up in the
court but as far as the warning message is concerned, it makes it clear
that visiting any blocked URL in India — and not just a torrent URL —
has potential to land a web user in trouble.

Block URLs, check e-piracy with a warning, HC tells ISPs

The order is applicable only to links on Indian websites.


Mumbai: Browsing the internet to watch or download pirated copies of
films may lead you to blocked websites, and a stern warning message from
your local internet service provider (ISP). The development follows a
Bombay high court (HC) order under the Copyright Act, where offenders
could attract a three-year prison term and a fine of up to Rs 3 lakh for
viewing, downloading, exhibiting or duplicating an illicit copy of
copyrighted content.

The HC in July blocked “134 web links and URLs” on a plea made by the
producers of the Varun Dhawan, John Abraham-starrer Dishoom, who sought
protective orders against illegal distribution of their film through
online piracy.

In a bid to strike a balance between the rights of film producers and
legitimate e-commerce sites, Justice Gautam Patel, while ordering the
blocks, also directed ISPs to display a disclaimer that the site was
unavailable due to a court order. Subsequently, on August 12, an ISP,
Tata Communication Ltd (TCL), pleaded that it was “technically
impossible” to implement the directive.

But the court insisted that TCL should display the warning message:
“This URL has been blocked under the instructions of the competent
government authority or in compliance with the orders of a court of
competent jurisdiction. Viewing, downloading, exhibiting or duplicating
an illicit copy of the contents under this URL is punishable as an
offence under the laws of India, including but not limited to under
Sections 63, 63-A, 65 and 65-A of the Copyright Act, 1957 which
prescribe imprisonment for 3 years and also fine of up to Rs. 3 lakh.”
Also, “Any person aggrieved by any such blocking of this URL may contact
a nodal officer within 48 hours… for redressal.”

The message is essentially to enable any link or URL wrongly blocked
to initiate steps to have it unblocked. But the message has also
affected Indian netizens who worry that merely visiting a blocked site
could land them in prison. Allaying such fears, senior counsel Venkatesh
Dhond said, “A user who merely reaches a site that has been blocked and
views this error message is not liable to any penalty. But if he
persists with his attempt and accesses the pirated print, then he could
be liable to punishment under the law.”

The HC had recently passed a similar blocking order for 110 websites
when makers of Great Grand Masti said it would be no fun for them if
viewers had access to illegal, pirated, leaked copies online. The
producers then had sought 800 websites and links to be blocked, but the
HC wanted specifics. But Justice Patel expressed concern that such
orders should not affect legitimate businesses in the bargain. He has
been putting producers to stricter test to verify offending links before
listing them as culprits.

In his order in the Dishoom case, Justice Patel said, “Increasingly,
there are many named defendants, all services providers of one stripe or
another… to represent, usually, those unidentified persons
responsible for actual copyright infringement—for illegally uploading
illicit content for Internet downloads and streaming; making bootleg CDs
and DVDs etc. More and more plaintiffs (usually film producers) name
service providers: blocking access is very like cutting off the oxygen
or blood supply. I have yet to come across a reported case where an
actual John Doe (the uploader of such illegal content) was ever finally traced and prosecuted.”

Top 10 Most Popular Torrent Sites of 2016




Posting a list of the world’s most-visited torrent
sites has been a long-standing tradition at TF, which we continue
today. At the start of 2016 KickassTorrents is pulling in most traffic
followed by The Pirate Bay. A lot of things have happened over the past
year, with some torrent sites disappearing from the scene and others
taking their place.

torrent sites 2016Most file-sharers are creatures of habit, but when their favorite site disappears they gladly hop over to the next one.


This is also reflected in our annual top 10 torrent sites with the
most traffic, which sees the usual names on top but also features some
dubious newcomers.


One of the major changes came with the hostile takeover
of the popular TV-torrent site EZTV. This prompted the popular
TV-torrent distribution group to shut down last May. Another group took
over the popular brand and continued with their own ‘unofficial’ EZTV
releases. We therefore marked the site as a newcomer.


Something similar happened to YIFY’s YTS website, when its New Zealand-based admin ran into legal trouble. The official YTS website shut down but it was quickly replaced by the “unofficial” YTS.ag, which gathered a large user-base over the past two months.


Apparently, most torrent users are happy as long as they can get their fix, no matter what the source is.


KickassTorrents (KAT) remains the most visited torrent site and
continues to grow. The Pirate Bay is listed in second place and made a
strong comeback after nearly two months of downtime spanning the turn of
the year. Since the site has been operating from several domain names
until a few days ago, we chose not to list an Alexa rank.


Finally, it’s worth noting that Rutracker
would have made it into the top five based on the number of visitors.
However, we choose to only include English language content sites.


Below is the full list of the top 10 most-visited torrent sites at
the start of the new year. The list is based on various traffic reports
and we display the Alexa rank for each. In addition, we include last
year’s ranking for each of the 10 sites.



Most Popular Torrent Sites



1. KickassTorrents


(update July 2016: KAT is down)
KickassTorrents was founded in 2009 and surpassed The Pirate Bay in
traffic last year. Battling various censorship efforts the site has
burned through a few different domain names over the years. Most
recently it switched to a Costa Rican .cr domain after it lost its Somalian .so address.



Alexa Rank: 85 / Last year #1


2. The Pirate Bay


The Pirate Bay is one of the main piracy icons. The torrent site
wasn’t online at the beginning of 2015 and had to deal with a staff
revolt. However, it quickly regained millions of users after a
successful comeback operating from a hydra of domain names until last
week.



Alexa Rank: NA / Compete Rank: NA / Last year #4


3. ExtraTorrent


ExtraTorrent continues to gain more traffic and has become one of the
most active torrent communities. The site is also the home of the
popular ETTV and ETRG release groups.



Alexa Rank: 342 / Last year #3


4. Torrentz


(Update August 2016: Torrentz has shut down)
Torrentz has been the leading BitTorrent meta-search engine for many
years. Unlike the other sites featured in the list Torrentz does not
host any torrent files or magnet links, but redirects visitors to other
places on the web. The site uses several domain names with .eu being the
most popular.



Alexa Rank: 351 / Last year #2


5. RARBG


RARBG, which started out as a Bulgarian tracker, was last year’s
newcomer and continues to rake in more visitors. The site was blocked by
UK ISPs last year, which put it on par with most other sites in the top
10.



Alexa Rank: 1,101 / Last year #7


6. 1337x


1337x has traditionally been a community driven torrent site but
several weeks ago most of the admins and moderators abandoned ship over
security concerns. The coming year it will become clear whether 1337x
can keep its popular status.



Alexa Rank: 1,249 / Last year #9


7. EZTV.ag


TV-torrent distribution group EZTV shut down earlier this year after a
hostile takeover. The site continued to operate under new ownership and
releases its own torrents now. In solidarity with the original owners
several large torrent sites have banned these ‘new’ releases from their
sites.



Alexa Rank: 1,373 / Last year #NA


8. TorrentHound


TorrentHound has been around since the last decade but is a newcomer
in the top 10. It has also been on the radar of copyright holders this
year. The torrent site is blocked in several countries and was reported
as a piracy haven to the U.S. government, alongside many other sites in
this list.



Alexa Rank: 2,239 / Last year #NA


9. YTS.ag


YTS.ag has nothing to do with the original YTS or YIFY group, but
aims to take its place. As with the new EZTV, several large torrent
sites are not allowing the group to use the YIFY or YTS brands on their
sites.



Alexa Rank: 740 / Compete Rank: 4,271 / Last year #NA


10. TorrentDownloads


TorrentDownloads has been around for several years. The torrent site
regained a spot in the top 10 this year after it was featured for the
last time in 2011. It’s a no-nonsense index that provides torrents to
millions of users each month.

documents and __e?Vidence?infsupport of each such or weblink.
Aiplex sent\" .on' alist of 134 web links. A categoric 1 statement is
made in paragraph? in these terms: I I I
	
'?As stated above, these links are currently ormant.
	
They Will, however, spring to life and become ctive as
	
as an offending cepy ,of the film ecomes

  i 12. The Affidavit goes on to say that Aiplex fo arded to the
 Plaintiffs detailed supporting documents and 'dence. This
a   evidence takes the form of screenshots evidencing speci?c page
contents of each URL. In other words, Aiplex troubled itself to visit
each link and then obtained a screenshot of the resultant webpage.
This is used by the Plaintiff's to establish and demonstrate that these
URLs and web links do in fact claim to offer illicit copies of the ?lm
	
(not just trailers and promos). By its letter of 25th July 2016, a copy

HIGH COURT,
	
of which is at Exhibit to this Ai?davit, - plex in writing,
con?rmed that it had veri?ed every single one of thse URLs. 7? .    
	
13. In paragraph 5, Mr. Gupte then says that he . the.
Advocates further personally cross-checked all I linksand
URLs mentioned at Exhibit with the supporting documents,
and he con?rms that they found each of these web?  URLs do
indeed purport to potentially offer ?'ee downloa or streaming of
illegal copies of the ?lm. This is veri?ed-and. con?rmed on Af?davit.
	
14. Thus, what I have  a three-step veri?cation.
First, a veri?cation   ia?essm?nt by Aiplex. This is
accompanied by  There is then a second level
of veri?cation that said ?to..have been done by the deponent of the
Af?davit the Plaintiffs? Advocates; and ?nally all of this

suf?Cient material as which to base an order.
	
  The rest of the Af?davit deals with past instances. In
  paragraph 6 there is an expression of a serious a prehension that
.  these links will be activated very quickly. Paragrap 10 also sets out
the potential loss to the Plaintiffs. These elements are also essential
	
in an action of this type.
	
16. I turn now to Exhibit which is, ?rst, a o-page listing of
these 134 links. This is at pages 8 and 9 of the A?i vit. Thereafter,
from page 10 to page 143 are screenshots of th respective web
pages. I do not claim myself to have examined all 1 4 of these links. I

do not think it would be reasonable to expept Courts with

What I have done, however, is to quickly scan  list; for any
	
discrepancies. I notice none. I see that this list sho  to?t'oday is
very different from the list that was shown to me 6? 2016.
This is a much more carefully curated list. I do ?nd in this any
reference to links to trailers of the   shopping portals. The
supporting documents from and these too I have
quickly scanned, going geach?a page, do upport what the
Plaintiffs state. All of  down oads of the ?full
	
movie?. For instancefat' caption is ?Dishoom (2016) full
movie download?  we ?nd details pf the ?lm quality,
?le size and. ?le. format. Much the same mat1 rial is. on all the
subsequent pages,\" have not in fact been able to ?nd a single
screenshot in that points to either a trailer or any
 :displayof these contents. There is no material on these
pages that is kosher: the entire page (and we are riot here speaking of
an entire site) is speci?c to a download of the movie in question.

17. Mr. Dhond also points out, and I think he? is perfectly correct
in this, that the Plaintiffs have not given any contract to any party for
	
the exploitation of right in this ?lm. This be viewed as an
	
important contractual safeguard against online piracy, for what it is
worth.
	
18. I am satis?ed that there is a case made out for the grant of
	
some measured relief in terms of the list now shown to me.

What is the meaning of ‘torrent’ (related to internet downloads) ? 
	
Best Answer:  A .torrent file is a small file that is stored on servers called Bittorrent trackers. When a user downloads a torrent file, he/she opens it in a Bittorrent client which reads the file. The file contains the address of the tracker, which the client reports to, announcing that it is present and requesting peers. This is the first `scrape`. The tracker returns the IP addresses of some other users who are downloading the same file. Some of these peers may have 100 percent of the file. If this is the case, they are referred to as `seeds` or `seeders`. Peers who have less than 100 percent of the file are referred to as `leeches` or `leechers`. The client connects to these peers and begins requesting `pieces` of the file. Files that are transmitted via Bittorrent are broken into pieces during the creation of the torrent. The size of each piece is determined by the creator of the torrent. Each piece has a unique md5 hash. Therefore, if a user downloads 99% of a file, and a piece fails the hash check, they do not have to redownload the entire file; they only have to redownload the piece that failed the hash check. This ensures that the file is an exact duplicate of the original.
	
Bittorrent is one of the more popular methods of file transfer these days since it is so inexpensive. The only server that is needed is the server that runs the tracker software. Trackers use web interfaces to allow users to download the torrent files. All other data transfer is done by the peers themselves. There is no centralised server as there are in many other filesharing protocols.
	
Some recommended Bittorrent clients for Windows are Halite or uTorrent.
	
A good Linux client is Ktorrent.Some good Linux or OS X clients are libtorrent and TransmissionAzureus is a very feature-rich Java client
	
It is an efficient way of transferring large files from peer to peer.This explanation is in layman’s terms, so don’t nit pick.
	
A single person begins with a file (the seeder). He places the torrent up for download. Another person downloads the torrent, and opens it with a torrent client (the leecher). Once the leecher fully downloads the file, he too becomes a seeder. If a new leecher comes along, each seeder only has to transfer 50% of the file, as the other seeder will cover the other half. The higher the ratio of seeders to leechers the faster the download. All of this is done automatically by the bittorent client. ( I recommend uTorrent)
	
Wikipedia has a good diagram to illustrate what really goes on.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorrent_(protocol)
	
A torrent can have two meanings. The first meaning is when you download/share a file via the bittorrent protocol, that file is called a torrent.
	
A torrent is also a small file that when used with a bittorrent client, tells the client how to find the and download the software it corresponds to. 
	
Torrent means free sites for Movies,Music,Software,etc;It is P2P system and some way ill-legal.You can download above all from Torrent site,for that you must have software as like Bit-Torrent,uTorrent.These are available at www.download.com and many free software sites.
