Video: why the IT Rules are a threat to your Internet as you know it


At the Internet Democracy Project, we believe that the Internet is changing democracy just as irrevocably as it is changing dictatorships. But if that is the case, what does that mean for our struggles and visions for social change in the democratic world?

This video raises questions about a set of rules notified under the Indian IT Act, which allow anyone who is offended by any online content to ask the intermediaries to remove it. But someone, somewhere may always be offended…. so these amendments inevitably encourage not just the government but the public themselves to turn censor.

What does this mean for freedom of expression?

Member of Parliament Shri P. Rajeeve has called for the annulment of the IT Rules in Parliament. But what exactly is the problem with these rules? And how could they affect you? Watch the video to know more. and check http://www.internetdemocracy.in/
