Court Orders SOPA-Style Blackout of 100+ Music Sites

Tell me again why governments needed SOPA when they have always been able to do this?

Every single ISP in India has been ordered to block 104 sites offering unauthorized music. A total of 387 ISPs must block the sites immediately via DNS and IP address blocking, backed up with Deep Packet Inspection. While the IFPI praised the action, their Indian counterparts are singing are more interesting tune آ– they don’t want to destroy their opponents, but bring them into the business.
