Government to weaken safe harbour immunity and hold social media platforms more accountable

Share via:

The government has not been happy with social media giants because of their lower compliance to takedown notices. The government is now looking to weaken their safe harbour immunity and place more emphasis on accountability through amendments to the IT Rules.

According to the TOI report, the government intends to amend the law to address accountability concerns, protect personal data, and improve cyber security in relation to social media. The law will require the government to investigate major social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, and YouTube. If these companies host illegal and inflammatory user content, they risk losing their immunity shield or safe harbour protection against third-party content violations.
