News: PIL against Social Networking sites in the Delhi HC

Social networking sites are under judicial scrutiny: A PIL has been filed in the Delhi High Court against different social networking websites. The petition scrutinizes the income generated by these sites and the taxation of the same. Among other things, it seeks a direction that such websites should not “do agreements” with individuals under the age of 13, and that government officers do “not use social networking websites through office computers” as this would pose a potential data threat.

The matter is listed for April 9, 2013. Watch this space.
