Why are we hosting this discussion?

At a time when millions of Indians are coming online each month, and the consumption of content is increasing rapidly, it’s important to examine how Fake News can impact democratic processes, and the challenges that countries and citizens face because of it. We also want to examine the impact that potential regulation may have on the distribution and consumption of content online in India, and implications for citizens, media owners, content creators and governments, as well as platforms from an intermediary liability perspective.
