Hi I am Bhushan from Maharashtra. I am seeking legal advice on Pirated content over internet. I want to ask that "watching or streaming pirated movie or any contents on internet" is illegal in India? Not downloading only streaming or watching. I have been searching it on Google from many years but some people say it is legal and some say it is not. actually some people say that only downloading pirated content is illegal not streaming or watching. And it has thrown me in a big puzzle. That's why I want to ask you that is it really illegal to "watch or stream" pirated contents on internet in India? Please help me out sir, it is so important for me to know that because I do not want to mess with crime.
I know that if it is illegal then other person should be illegal and liable for punishment.
But first I want to know that is it crime to stream or watchbut first I want to know that is it crime to stream or watch pirated contents on internet in India?
Please help me out
