Indian ISP Blocks Sites For Illegal File Sharing

 Digital rights is one investing trend I discuss (investing trends).

Internet service providers (ISP) are taking no chance with legal recourse and just shutting down websites that are responsible for illegal file sharing.

an Indian court seemingly having no problems issuing widespread ISP blockades in response to a request from movie studio Reliance Entertainment. The reasoning is that Reliance is hoping to prevent the file sharing of its latest movie. But rather than narrowly targeting the file sharing of that movie (or of other Reliance properties), the court ordered complete blocking of a variety of websites including Megaupload and BTJunkie  (full story)

The recording industry is already placing digital watermarks in new releases, how much longer before the movie industry adopts this technology?

Investing trends to keep your eye on.

Looking for big trends and the stocks in them?
