Mumbai High Court agrees to hear challenge to Intermediary Guidelines.. Unfortunate

A petition has been filed in Mumbai High Court against the recent Intermediary Guidelines by Mr Kunal Karma a stand up comedian according to a report in Bar and Bench and the Court has agreed to hear it on April 21.

We draw the attention of the public and hopefully that of the Mumbai High Court that the petition lacked merit even to be accepted if there is a prima facie evaluation of the rules.

I suppose the following articles explain why I consider that the fear expressed by a section of the press is imaginary and speculative.

1.What is wrong with Internet Freedom Foundation?

2. “Deeply Disturbed” Editor’s Guild is Wrong

3. The FactCheck Compliance

4.Is Editor’s Guild itself putting out a fake news?

5.There is no Right to Fake News

6.Gaming Intermediaries…Final Guidelines released

This petition is a waste of public money and Court’s time and costs should be imposed on the petitioner.
