Sailgate: The Party that Wasn’t

Update 2: I received a takedown notice for this post as per the much hated IT Rules today 16-05-2012 at 4:15pm. This is a real take down notice by the solicitors of the Duttas, not Operation Test Drive. Considering that the motion for annuling the IT Rules is being moved in the Rajya Sabha by Sri. P. Rajeeve tomorrow, and I have 36 hours to take the post down, I am letting this remain on the hope that there is a strong indication of the IT Rules being annulled. If that doesn’t happen, I will be taking this down at some point before 36 hours from 4:15pm today are up. This is precisely the problem with IT Rules – the arbitrary power to censor or be taken by rich people to the LAWndry. I have to do it, I don’t have to like it. images below are the takedown notice (NOT the one in next update..

Update 1: This post contains edits based on the letter by Lt Col Gautama Dutta and Anju Dutta’s legal representative.

  1. Here’s a bit of good news. You’re a content creator and not an intermediary. This would have been true if this was a hosted blog like or And even then, the takedown notice would have to be sent to THEM not you.

    So please put this post back. Let these goons know that it’s not so easy to just take down someone’s content.

  2. Are you really an ‘intermediary’? Have you seen the definition of ‘intermediary’ under the IT Act? I think this is how it is defined:

    “intermediary”, with respect to any particular electronic record,
    means any person who on behalf of another person receives, stores or transmits
    that record or provides any service with respect to that record and
    includes telecom service providers, network service providers, internet service
    providers, web-hosting service providers, search engines, online payment sites,
    online-auction sites, online-market places and cyber cafes. Do you think you would fall within the above?

  3. The whole dutta Family ( S. Dutta, Gautam & Anju Dutta ) is corrupted . They have even misleading Mr. Ambani ,who has a Yacht named ” Tian ” for not paying up custom duty for their yacht. You can just imagine such a big businessman being fooled by Dutta & Marine Solutions.
    Dutta has even spoiled Indian Yachting Industry, all this should have been taken care by Indian Marine Federations ( IMF ).
