Supreme Court Says nothing contrary to Indian laws should be advertised online

The Supreme Court urged the Centre to make sure that websites like Google India, Yahoo India and Microsoft Corporation (I) Pvt Ltd do not carry contents in violation of the laws prohibiting sex determination of a foetus. “In our considered opinion, an effort has to be made to see that nothing contrary to laws of this country are advertised or shown on these websites,” said a bench led by Justice Dipak Misra while rejecting an argument that the content on some websites could not be controlled since their servers were located abroad.
