It is duly admitted as the courts need only reference to arrive at a right conclusion. Now a days online judgments are also seen, read and quoted by judges.

Some judges consider the downloaded copies of judgments.
Whereas some judges still prefers the copies from jounals, AIR, SCC etc with page numbers etc.

Depends on the judge.

In my own experience one judge accepted the same, other rejected it.

So far as the downloaded copy can be related to a reported judgement , there should not be any problem in relying on the same. when , the copy submitted lacks such reference, the Judge is right in not relying on the same.

It depends upon judges.
Every web site there is disclaimer regarding use of judgments.

Judgments [both downloaded/published] can be submitted to the court and there is in no difference or preference at all. Be free in relying upon and submitting the downloaded judgments in the courts.
