The two internet giants will have to face a blackout in India after a Delhi High Court ordered them to find a way to remove objectionable and derogatory content from their websites.
“Like China, we will block all such websites,” Kait said, The Times of India reports.
Here’s what Mukul Rohatgi had to say on behalf of Google India on the matter:
“No human interference is possible, and moreover, it can’t be feasible to check such incidents,” Rohatgi said. “Billions of people across the globe post their articles on the website. Yes, they may be defamatory, obscene, but cannot be checked.”
Give us your take on the issue. Do you think banning such sites will help reduce access to derogatory content on the web?
