Looks like the infamous piracy website TamilRockers has finally been blocked. TamilRockers is a public torrent website which uploads the pirated versions of Tamil, Telugu, Hindi, English, Malayalam, Kannada and other language films on their site. It keeps changing their domain to new link to keep running illegal piracy site.
The latest is that multiple DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act) reports have been filed against the piracy site by Amazon International, which has lead to the site being removed form the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) registry.
Though the infamous website is not working for now, it is to be seen if can operate with a newer domain. Among all the film industry in India, the Tamil film industry is the most affected by the piracy as said by the k-town producers themselves. Is the piracy website completely blocked or not? We will have to wait and see.
For now, the Tamil film fraternity can breathe a sigh of relief, but not so much, as none of the movies are planned for release anytime soon with theatres not allowed to open yet due to the COVID-19 situation.
