Safe Harbour is not a certificate or a stamp that is issued by the government. It is an inherent protection available to #intermediaries.
#ITRules #TwitterIndia #SocialMedia…
#Twitter has approximately 1.75 crore users in India. The Safe harbour protection is an inherent protection granted to intermediaries which is a defense it can take against imposition of liability for acts done by third parties.
Such a defense is taken at the time of ascertainment and quantification of liability which would be done before a court of law and not by the government.

#Twitter & #Facebook are not getting #banned but If these significant social media intermediaries don't comply with the #ITRules they could however lose the safe harbor protection which means they could incur liability (civil & criminal) for the acts done by third party users.
The Rules could also undermine the principles of open & accessible internet, the fundamental #RightToPrivacy & #FreeSpeech & expression enshrined in the Constitution.…

The #informationtechnology Rules, 2021 (#ILRules) which have been prescribed by the #Centralgovt under Section 79 of the IT Act are a set of compliances which the intermediaries have to abide by, in order to keep the safe harbor protection intact.

Alarm Phone, in solidarity with #SAR NGOs and #migrants at sea, condemns Italy's new Security Decree. This law is part and parcel of an authoritarian turn in Italy, seeking to criminalise any #resistance to racist state practices & deadly border regimes. #DecretoSicurezzabis
The new #Italian law, frames #SeaRescue as ‘abetting illegal migration’, a complete myth & lie. Closed ports, push-backs & failures to provide assistance at #sea violate international laws, maritime #SAR conventions & migrants’ rights. #Libya is a war-zone, not a #SafeHarbour!
Criminalising those who rescue lives, this law is yet another #European effort to actively let migrants die at sea. Letting them drown is a strategy intended to deter other #migrants from crossing. This does not work - it just amplifies suffering. #BordersKill

Hello humans! Settle down as I summarise for you the #WhatsApptraceability case that will potentially set a global precedent for how governments approach encrypted communication. I have been reporting on it for @medianama
It all started with @AntonyRubin's PIL to link Aadhaar and social media accounts.

The latest: I spoke to IIT Madras's Dr Kamakoti about the submissions he has made to Madras HC.
Kamakoti is very clear: "WhatsApp remains the same. Their end-to-end encryption remains the same. There’s nothing that we want to change. There’s nothing that warrants the change."
traceability is also important to prevent social harm, scams
