India Unblocks File-Sharing Sites 10

An anonymous reader writes with an update to news from last month that many popular file-sharing sites, including the Pirate Bay, had been blocked in India. Now, India's Madras High Court has amended its earlier decision. "The court order wasn’t targeted at a specific site or ISP and gave the copyright holder carte blanche to demand broad blockades. The ISPs were seen as the bad guys by subscribers and 'Anonymous' groups, but had no other option than to comply." Instead of forcing ISPs to block an entire site in order to prevent the sharing of a single file, now only particular URLs must be blocked. "The new order was issued following an appeal filed by a consortium of ISPs."
