The fight against online copyright infringement is being taken to foreign shores by Indian music companies. It has long been the case that enforcing rights against online infringers have been difficult owing to the inherent nature of the worldwide web.

However, lately music companies in India are resorting to cost effective measures to combat such piracy without incurring exorbitant legal expenses. Apart from pursuing remedies available under Indian laws, music companies are also using the take down provisions of the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act to disable access to online content which infringes their copyright.

Recently, pursuant to a DMCA takedown notice by Super Cassettes Industries Ltd., better known by its well known trademark "T-Series", the online music streaming website www.dishant.com was shut down.

T-Series is one of the major players in the Indian music industry and has been proactive in taking legal action against infringers in India and has expanded its fight against infringement to the worldwide web by employing all means including take down notices.

According to T-Series' President, Neeraj Kalyan, "The proprietor of the website www.dishant.com flatly refused to take a license for the use of our copyrighted works and was confident that we wouldn't take him to court. We hope that this will serve as a warning to all those who are engaged in brazen infringement of our works that T-Series will deploy all available remedies to protect our valuable repertoire."
