Has anybody in India been arrested recently for accessing torrent sites? by Manish Chaurasia
Answer by Manish Chaurasia:
Well first of all Torrent isn’t illegal but downloading copyrighted material is . You will only get arrested if the owner of copyrighted material files a complaint against you. In India it all started with the downloading of leaked movies even before they got released . So you can just wait for few days and then you can download whatever you want once the content becomes old.
And if you want it badly then there are plenty of websites which provides you all latest movies.
Well, there was a case . In 2013, an IT professional was arrested by the Mumbai police in Vikhroli for downloading copyrighted content via torrents and was to be booked under section 66 of the IT Act but was let go after a warning. This was a experiment in tracking peers done by the cyber cell network.
