Taming the Web, are we?

   "His sentiments are shared by politicians across the world, including
    in India. Just three days ago, Congress MP Shantaram Naik, aghast at
    the "filthy" comments on a website, said in the Rajya Sabha that the
    internet needs to be "purified" . Different politicians and
    governments have different reasons. But regulation is growing. In the
    last few years, governments across the world have proposed or enacted
    laws (see box) that aim to "civilize" the web."
