India wants Google and Facebook to preemptively censor content

http://j.mp/t5aURP  (Guardian)

   "The Indian government has told social networking giants Facebook,
    Google, Yahoo and Microsoft to remove material that might "offend
    Indian sensibilities", unleashing a storm of criticism from internet
    users in the world's largest democracy."

"Google Outcry Lack of Proper Internet Intermediary Law In India"

http://j.mp/rwgE5A  (CJNews India)

   "Internet intermediaries in India have started showing their
    dissatisfaction towards the draconian policies and rules of Indian
    government pertaining to Internet and its use. E-surveillance in India
    and surveillance of Internet traffic in India have increased to a
    considerable limit that now requires judicial scrutiny. Censorship of
    Internet in India should be challenged as soon as possible in the
    larger interests of Indian Internet users."
