IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad's Twitter account has locked
The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry on behalf of Sony Music Entertainment flagged a copyright violation complaint that has ended up with lock of Twitter handling account of IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad for around an hour.
It was over copyright violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of the USA.
Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, Chairman of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology said that, his account was also locked after he posted an explainer on why Union Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad was blocked from posting from his handle.
Terming the action by Twitter a "foolish response" to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of the USA (DCMA) notice, Shashi Tharoor said that the microblogging site could have just disabled the video.
Shashi Tharoor took to Twitter and said: "Raviji, the same thing just happened to me. Clearly DMCA is getting hyperactive. This tweet has been deleted by @Twitter because its video includes the copyrighted BoneyM song Rasputin."
Shashi Tharoor said that he will be seeking an explanation from Twitter India over the brief locking of his and Ravi Shankar Prasad's account.
