Google yields to court judgement removes offensive content


Google has removed offensive content from it's Indian site in compliance with a court order which directed Google to remove all objectionable material. As soon as the judgment was passed by Judge Mukesh Kumar of a New Delhi District Court, material which included religious figures depicted in a not so good manner were removed by Google in it's Indian site as well as in Blogger and You Tube as well.

An expert on the condition of anonymity stated that the objectionable content has been removed from Google' Indian services but is still accessible across the rest of the world. But the Indian moral police has surely received a shot in the arm through the Delhi Court's verdict.

Not only this, the Delhi Court has also issued notices to Facebook and Yahoo to remove offensive content from their sites thereby intensifying the crackdown on internet content offense and abuse.
