India: Complying with India’s New Safe Harbour Laws

With the new IT rules coming in, they need to do more 'due diligence' to be able to claim benefit of safe harbor protections. Moreover, the Indian Government seems minded to enforce these rules stringently, and is targeting local officers in particular. The risk that online platforms face in India is now fully realized, and requires strategic, long-term thinking to formulate a response.
