Finally, it is here. The total ban on torrent sites which began in the US through their movie moguls. Indian courts bowed to the pressure to prevent downloading of movies through torrents and brought pressure on internet service providers. They in turn have put a total ban on all torrent sites. So along with movies, you can no longer download music, books or videos through torrents. What a shame.
Bangalore's Airtel caved in last week and banned all torrent sites with a message "Blocked by court order".
There is a simple way around this at present. www.Clearhide.com has a box for anonymous browsing that allows you to visit isohunt, pirate bay and other torrent sites for a few minutes before the block kicks in.:)
