Court direction to '3' producers

The Madras High Court on Friday told producers of Dhanush’s recent flick ‘3’ that there is no need to block a whole website for uploading pirated content.

The court told the producers, R.K. Productions Private Ltd, to provide specific pirated links of the film to internet service providers (ISPs), so they could block it from public viewing.

Earlier, many video sharing sites were blocked for hosting pirated content. Following this, internet service providers such as Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Tata Communications sought clarity on the matter.
