Hi, what are you looking for?

Announcement: Roundtable on Online Content Regulation; Dec 13, 2019, Mumbai #Ad

MediaNama invites you to apply to attend our Roundtable on Regulation of Online Content, Mumbai being held at the The LaLit  on December 13th (Friday) 2019.

You can apply here: bit.ly/contentmumbai

Our report from the Delhi edition of the roundtable: bit.ly/onlinecontentreport

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting is setting up a consultation for certification of online content. It has already held consultations across multiple cities, and is reportedly moving toward self-regulation. The consultation comes at a time when there are court cases faced by online content services on the grounds of obscenity, defamation, consumption of content by children, and lack of regulatory structure. There are questions around censorship and certification, the jurisdiction of MIB, whether online content streaming is public or private viewing, and about how this might impact online content aggregators as well.

The challenge lies in the prevention of creation, sharing and consumption of illegal content and acts, while still preserving both the freedom to create, consume and share content. The discussion will look at the legal and policy issues around such a move, and the potential impact on the ubiquity of content on the Internet and balkanisation of the open web.
