Delhi High Court orders for blocking of 219 websites infringing SONY’s FIFA rights

Multi Screen Media Private Limited (formerly SONY) approached Delhi High Court in the month of June 2014 restraining file sharing website from infringing their FIFA rights. SONY submitted that they have exclusive Broadcasting rights for India and neighboring countries (that includes Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Srilanka) and the FIFA world cup matches are being shown LIVE on six channels but their rights are infringed over the Internet as the Videos are being freely shared over file sharing websites including uploadable.ch, divxstage.eu, torrenthound.com, nowvideo.sx, limetorrents.com, torrentfunk.com, torrents.net, thepiratebay.org, torlock.com, movshare.net, thetorrent.org, and son on. Initially, SONY submitted a list of 472 websites, which was later on revised to 219 websites as poer 01 July order.

Medianama.com very rightly reports as follows as to original list of 472 websites:

Before passing such an order, we wonder if any one actually checked the websites ?

– The fact that URL shorteners and Google Docs are in the list is unexplainable.
– While checking the sites at random, we also noticed that nubestream.com was shut down earlier, due to a change in Spanish laws (as per a notice on its website). How new is this list?
– Some of the sites (perhaps some of the telugu content sites) might be violating copyright but they don’t specifically violate MSM’s copyright.
– What about protection under the IT Rules? Upload and file storage sites are intermediaries, and should not be held responsible for the content that their users upload.

So, is this a list of actual sites that infringe MSN’s copyright or is it a random list of file-sharing sites compiled by them? Of course, this is not to suggest that there weren’t actual football live streaming sites in the list, but this collateral damage is hard to justify.”

This is very true, how you can justify blocking of website like Google Docs. Which now though have been removed from the list. And so the question has been perfectly asked above: How new was the original list ???

The revised list of website blocked as per Delhi High Court order originally is as follows:
