India Unveils New Online Regulations
Provided By - Video Elephant on February 25, 2021
India is rolling out new regulations for social media companies and digital streaming websites. The new rules would force online platforms to cooperate with law enforcement and erase content authorities deem unlawful. The government would also be allowed to ban content affecting "the sovereignty and integrity of India." Critics and digital privacy advocates argue the rules will undermine user rights and free speech. The regulations are set to take effect within three months.
