Why Tamilrockers Can't Get Blocked?
Tamilrockers has constantly been giving problems to Tamil cinema in the form of piracy, and the Tamil Film Producers Council has been trying their best, to bring down the activities of the site, through their Anti - Piracy team. Behindwoods got in touch with Shiva, an ethical hacker, for an exclusive interview.
During the interview, On being asked if its possible to completely block Tamilrockers, Shiva replied in the negative. He explained, "To be frank, it is not possible to delete or block Tamilrockers completely. The reason why they change their domains like, from .gr to .tw, or something, is because we take down every domain that they host.
We can form teams and work towards deleting every domain, but there is no possibility of completely taking down the website, because, just like how we take down a website, through a technology and coding, the same way, they host a site, with a technology and coding. So, there is an equal amount of technology implemented from their side too, and it isn't possible to completely take down Tamilrockers.
We can temporarily block, but in the long term, there is no access for that. We, along with Producers Council, are trying to cut down their activities, and we block each domain that they host. We can cut down the number of downloads from 100 to 10, and stop 90 other people from downloading. We can also delay the download speed time of a movie. Say, if a movie usually takes some 30 minutes - 1 hour to completely download, we can delay it up to 2 days or 3 days.
It is practically not possible to track down the place from where the website is hosted, because, when a person hosts a website, he will have to register it with a mobile number and an email id, but here, both of those details are wrong and fake. So, we can't trace them that way.
