+ - Internet Censorship in India->

ixarux writes "India is at a crucial crossroad at the moment. Internet censorship laws are getting stricter as it begins to ban file-sharing and video-sharing websites.
It started with Indian courts allowing censorship of Google, Facebook, etc.
It has now gone one step ahead and decided to ask ISPs to block file-sharing site. It is the movie industry which is again at the forefront of this.
Anonymous retaliated, and targeted the websites of various Indian government websites in protest.
What India lacks at this crucial juncture are debates in the public domain about this and citizens actually organizing protests as seen in the West."
