The ISPAI has refuted claims by the IMI that ISPs facilitate music piracy on the Internet.

"We reiterate that an ISP who merely provides such access is not in any way violating the provisions of the Copyright Act or the IT Act 2000," the ISPAI President, Mr Sanjay Dwivedi, said in the letter.

On IMI's demand that ISPs should devise appropriate software filters to block out public access to "illegal and nefarious sites", the ISPAI said that blocking of sites could be done only after a direction by a competent authority or by an order passed by a competent court.
