Cutting the Chai Effect: Guruji Sheds Copyrighted Material

Don’t mind the title of the post. I couldn’t help it. Afterall while T-Series’ army of lawyers couldn’t yet stop Guruji.com from indexing ‘pirated’ content, the previous post on Cutting the Chai seems to have got the website to remove other copyrighted material.

The earlier design for Guruji.com’s homepage, as pointed out in this blog, included unauthorised images from Shutterstock. Now they have removed the erring graphics.

Am now eagerly waiting for the verdict on indexing the music.

Interestingly, the mainstream media has almost ignored the Guruji episode, quite unlike when Avnish Bajaj, CEO of Bazee.com was put behind bars.

Piracy, it seems, isn’t as newsworthy as an MMS scandal.

About Soumyadip

Soumyadip Choudhury aka Somu aka Chaiwallah is an internet addict. His wife and family suspect that he is secretly married to his laptop. The electric shock that he got while trying to fix a neighbour's TV set as a kid, perhaps ignited his interest in everything tech. A do-it-yourself guy, he doesn't believe in hiring electricians, plumbers or carpenters. But often ends paying the professionals more to fix his botched jobs. Somu secretly wishes he knew how to code and also grumbles a lot.
