Starting today millions of music lovers across the nation will have to go without there favorite music songs latest tracks as the Calcutta High court has passed an order to all ISP’s and Mobile services services providers for banning songs.pk from being accessed by the subscribers .
This would imply that all mobile and landlines internet users would not be able to visit songs.pk and download the favorite songs.
As per the petition filled by sagarika music pvt ltd before the Calcutta high court ( Case Numbers 187&23 of 2012 Dated 27 Jan) all ISP’s have been directed to block access to the website songs.pk by any of the following methods:
- DNS name blocking
- IP address blocking via routers
-DPI based URL blocking
Our Take: The fact is our Govt is turning paranoid and in spite of being a democratic state Govt is behaving like China. They are pushing Google and Facebook to remove objectionable stuffs. Now who is to define non-appropiate stuffs?
Secondly this order will not affect most of users, as this court order is directed to Dishnet Wireless, Reliance WiMax, Hathway Cable & Datacom Pvt Ltd, Hughes Communications India, Tata Tele (Maharastra), Reliance World, Wipro Ltd, Sify Technologies Ltd, Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, BG Broadband (now You Telecom). So those are using ISPs other than these will have full access to the site. More importantly there are plenty of such sites offering music downloads.
