Blog Entry Analysis of the Copyright (Amendment) Bill 2012
by Pranesh Prakash published May 23, 2012 last modified Nov 12, 2013 02:13 PM — filed under: , , , , , , ,
There are some welcome provisions in the Copyright (Amendment) Bill 2012, and some worrisome provisions. Pranesh Prakash examines five positive changes, four negative ones, and notes the several missed opportunities. The larger concern, though, is that many important issues have not been addressed by these amendments, and how copyright policy is made without evidence and often out of touch with contemporary realities of the digital era.

Blog Entry Digital Futures: Internet Freedom and Millennials
by Nishant Shah published Feb 06, 2012 last modified Feb 15, 2012 04:25 AM — filed under:
Last year was a turbulent year for freedom of speech and online expression in India. Early in 2011 we saw the introduction of an Intermediaries Liability amendment to the existing Information Technologies Law in the country, which allowed intermediaries like internet service providers (ISPs), digital content platforms (like Facebook and Twitter) and other actors managing online content, to remove material that is deemed objectionable without routing it through a court of law. Effectively, this was an attempt at crowdsourcing censorship, where at the whim or fancy of any person who flags information as offensive, it could be removed from digital platforms, writes Nishant Shah in DMLcentral on 3 February 2012.
