making them available in various medium by internet, CD's and DVDs, Bluray drives, VCD’s Multi Media Messaging Services, Conditional Access Systems, including intermediaries.

Madras Talkies is a cine production firm in which Mani Ratnam and his wife Suhasini Maniratnam are partners.

'O Kaadhal Kanmani was released on April 17. Mani Ratnam contended that persons such as  Ashok Kumar, who have a propensity to pirate original versions of the film and distribute them worldwide, would infringe the movie by copying it.

Such infringements can be checked only by blocking URL which is an address that points the resource from which the internet is transmitting information. By doing so, piracy can be prevented, he added.
