Indian tech regulation Onslaught poses a dilemma for US companies

The ongoing spat between Indian and US social media companies shows how difficult it is to curb the overwhelming influence of technology platforms — and sometimes malice — on public discourse without radically strengthening the power of governments over police speech.

Recent developments in India well worth a look for the precedents they can set, especially for other major developing democracies.

The purpose will be similar to FacebookBoard of Supervisors – with the ability to review and potentially reverse content takedown or account block.
