The objectives of the workshop are:
To identify high-level trends related to the Internet and jurisdiction in India.
To document how states, platforms and users cope with the regulatory patchwork of national laws in areas such as privacy, defamation, copyright and freedom of expression.
To explore what multi-stakeholder frameworks can be developed to handle seizures, takedowns and Law Enforcement Agencies’ access to user data.
The workshop is part of a series of meetings convened by the Internet & Jurisdiction Project with different stakeholder groups around the world (Brazil, Europe, India and US). The results of the discussion will feed into the Workshop 42 ‘Fair process frameworks for cross-border online spaces’ at the Internet Governance Forum 2013 in Indonesia, which takes place on October 22 – 25, 2013.
The Internet Democracy Project is participating in the Delhi event.
