Making Google Accountable

I have lamented on this blog on more than one occassion (here, here and here) about Google’s attitude towards software piracy activities being carried out on its servers.

I was pleased to read this.

“The recommendation of an Indian parliamentary committee threatens to change the wording in proposed legislation that would hold Google and other service providers accountable for content traversing their system.

What is relevant here is that when [the] platform is abused for transmission of allegedly obscene and objectionable contents, the intermediaries/service providers should not be absolved of responsibility.”

About bloody time.
