Indian ISPs need to Block Sites - Will they Use DPI?

Courts in several counties issued recently orders to ISPs to block access to certain sites to prevent copyright infringement (UKBelgiumFinland as well as the SOPA legislation in the US).

Jayesh Limaye (pictured) reports to techtree that ".. the Calcutta High Court has issued a diktat to all the ISPs in India to block 104 domains who have been found to distribute music illegally. In a verdict that will cause the Indian Music Industry (IMI) to rejoice, the court has ordered a ban on websites such as BollywoodMP4.com andFreeIndiSongs.com. The ISPs have been given 36 hours to comply, by either blocking domain \ IP addresses or by using Deep Packet Inspection to ban the offending URLs".

A list of ISPs in India is available here.
