An Indian law blog on internet, media and telecom.
Very often when searching for Indian laws, the bare text is unavailable online. There is also a real possibility that when such sources are available, they are not updated and do not contain the latest amendments or regulatory orders. With the hope of increasing informed debate on the IT and Ecommerce Laws prevalent in India, we have compiled some resources for the readers of this blog.
As a general caveat, even though we have taken care to compile the sources below, we cannot claim they are authentic for the purposes of court filings and the like. Also in case you notice any errors, or the omission of a resource which would be of help, please let us know and we will try to upload it. With time we hope we can grow a good resource for IT Laws online.
Drawing on Section 79 of the Information Technology Act, 2000, these rules prescribe a stringent form of notice and takedown mechanism for internet intermediaries who want to avail of exemption from secondary liability.
