lets hope this is just temporary and will be overruled soon. otherwise indian listeners will have to find a workaround such as via vpn or mirror sites. our chinese listeners may be able to share experiences, ia is inaccessible every now and then from china too.

when i lived in turkey, access to youtube was blocked by court order as well, and it took most of us about five minutes to implement the workaround. how-to videos were uploaded to vimeo :lol:

Adding to the oddness, there's a whole section devoted to books in one of India's national libraries on IA.

Also, an Indian friend of mine recently moved back there and won't have access to books she recorded for LV.
My previous LV work: Bellona Times
