" Intermediary Liability in India: Chilling Effects on Free Expression on the Internet"

Intermediaries are widely recognised as essential cogs in the wheel of exercising the right to freedom of expression on the Internet. Most major jurisdictions around the world have introduced legislations for limiting intermediary liability in order to ensure that this wheel does not stop spinning. With the 2008 amendment of the Information Technology Act 2000, India joined the bandwagon and established a 'notice and takedown' regime for limiting intermediary liability.


The paper goes on to analyze how not treating different kinds of intermediaries differently leads to problems (esp for "takedown" actions).

 I think this is relevant to the "Publishing and Linking" document.
