Indian ISP Penalized For 'Overblocking' In Obeying Court Order To Try To Stop Infringement

'this highlights some of the many problems that occur when you give copyright holders the power to order outright censorship'

it shows how (being kind here) uninformed the courts and specifically, judges are when it comes to dealing with copyright and supposed infringement. it also shows for the 10 millionth time what a complete bunch of lying arseholes the various entertainment industries are, regardless of in which country and what lengths they will go to to achieve their overall aim of total control of the Internet. when they can say, through the lies and bribes they put out, who can up what to the internet and who then can access it and download it, then they will be happy. when governments can prevent all people from doing anything on the 'net except booking holidays, paying bills, checking bank accounts, buying items or services (whilst still paying store prices so tax levels remain high!) and reading/sending e-mails (that are constantly read in case of terrorist or subversive activities!), then they will be happy! and all in order to say 'fuck the people'! we're in charge!
