In India, a high court action by movie company Reliance Entertainment has led to ISPs blocking access to sites including BTjunkie and Megaupload, in an effort to stem piracy of new blockbuster Don 2. Meanwhile, in Holland, the Dutch parliament adopted a motion to keep personal-use downloading of films and music legal – a blow for anti-piracy campaigners there. Rightsholders in Spain had a happier start to the new year though: the country’s new government has approved the controversial Sinde Law, which was introduced by the previous administration to make it easier and quicker to shut down or block filesharing sites. In Japan, on the other hand, the developer of P2P application Winny has been cleared of conspiracy to commit copyright infringement, seven years after a case was first brought against him.
