Facebook and Google will censor content in India

Google censorship One of India’s court has just ruled that 21 online technology companies, including Facebook and Google, must remove content that is deemed offensive by Indian standards. The Indian branches of Facebook and Google have already complied with the ruling in New Delhi, removing pages that are considered to be socially or religiously offensive. Authorities in India have passed laws requiring web hosts to remove content within 36 hours of being notified.

Google has been long known for refuting and resisting government censorship, but due to the need to branch out into new markets, the company complied with the ruling, despite its controversial nature.
