Submission + - Piratebay, Vimeo blocked in India (moneycontrol.com) 1

webanish writes: Vimeo and The Pirate Bay have been blocked in India.

Then we had the alleged 'sex-scandal' where a senior cabinet minister was videographed having sex (for favor) in his high-court chambers, a story blacked out by main stream media (a.k.a. paidmedia), but went viral on twitter, facebook. Are we heading into dark times, where information flow is increasingly controlled by the high and mighty?
