    Court to hear online censorship case today

    A Delhi court will heart the civil suit filed against 22 internet and social networking companies today. The websites were actually asked to remove the objectionable content and then file a reply with the measures that they have taken to screen these content.

    Also in the Patiala house court, there is a criminal suit's hearing that has summoned the representatives of these websites that also include Facebook and Google. These companies have already argued that it is not possible for them to pre-screen the online content as billions of users are accessing the websites daily and that will ruin the users' freedom.

    Google has already told the court that the blacking of content cannot be done in a democratic nation. The companies have also filed challenging suits for the notices that they have received regarding the objectionable content online.
