Tamil Rockers is a torrent website that facilitates the illegal distribution of copyrighted material, including television shows, movies, music, and videos (It includes movies in Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam, English and Hindi languages). The site allows visitors to search for and download copyrighted material with the help of magnet links and torrent files, which facilitate peer-to-peer file sharing. In India, ISPs have been ordered to block access to the website. The website continues operation by switching to a series of new web addresses. Aside from its traditional list of pirate sites, apps, and hosting providers, the movie industry group MPAA now lists Tamil Rockers as one of the notorious markets.
Tamil Rockers is the tenth most popular torrent site in TorrentFreak’s Top 10 Most Popular Torrent Sites of 2020 list.
However, strict action has been taken by law enforcement agencies to block the website. But, they are still operating with impunity. The team of Tamilrockers keeps changing its domain name constantly, which makes it difficult to track them.
There are several cases filed against Tamilrockers. Police have claimed that all the accused are young and qualified students and most of them even hold degrees in MSc and BSc in Computer Science.
