India unblocks The Pirate Bay and other sharing sites

An anonymous reader writes "Millions of Indians can breathe a sigh of relief. They are once again able to access their favorite file-sharing sites, including The Pirate Bay and Torrentz.eu, after a consortium of ISPs appealed a broad censorship order. The Madras High Court specified an earlier decision and ruled that Internet providers no longer have to block entire websites to prevent a single movie from being shared online. It states that only specific web addresses — URLs — carrying the pirated content should be blocked, but not the entire website."
