    If you are using India’s dot .IN domains to facilitate digital piracy, you are already in trouble.

    The Motion Picture Association (MPA) of Hollywood has come to an agreement with the Indian domain registry NIXI, enabling them to suspend pirate sites.

    What’s new in this approach is that such anty-piracy cases are powered by claiming the domains in question use false WHOIS information.
