Recently Supreme Court ruled that bloggers will be held responsible for any content on his blog,including comments which are many a times posted by anonymous bloggers.
Most bloggers think its a restriction of freedom of speech, but I don’t think its freedom of speech we should be worried about. What if someone has to frame any blogger? All he has to do is post an anonymous comment, then send a PIL to court. What then? Wouldn’t it be abuse of our legal system? What about anonymous blogs? Will Indian government follow the Chinese path of compiling online identities of all its citizens?
Gee scary thoughts! I am getting bad dreams about this. Did someone imprison Sandman again?
