Often we hear about how the RIAA uses draconian methods to stop piracy, but after reading about how the Indian film industy intends to handle things, perhaps we’re getting off easy.

Movie distributor Dil Raju has filed what appears to be a preemptive complaint with the FBI against three dozen sites who he suspects will try to offer or link to his new movie..the list of 36 domains includes famous torrent sites such as The Pirate Bay, isoHunt… also a few surprises such as Google, GoDaddy and Netherlands ISP, LeaseWeb…
Raju goes on to warn that “websites which do not follow our rules” will be “blacklisted in all Organic search engines like Google, Yahoo! And Bing.”
A new movie called Jogaiah, has hired an anti-piracy outfit called Shree Technologies to protect the movie’s soundtrack due to be released later this month using their anit-piracy software.
“The software that we’ve used will help us track each person down, so that we can take action against them. It is much-needed in the film industry,” Shree Technologies said this week.
“All it requires is for someone to search for the keywords ‘Jogaiah music download’ and it automatically tracks them down,” he said. “If they have a webcam on their system and it’s switched on, it will also capture the photo of the offender.” (More here)
Obviously this sort of anti-piracy technology violates many laws…mainly, reality. This stuff doesn’t exist, nor will it ever, but it definitely amusing to see how far some people will go so you DON’T see their movie or hear their music.
