Won't remove content just because it's controversial: Google - The Times of India

NEW DELHI: Communications & IT minister Kapil Sibal managed to stir foreign websites and social media sites such as Facebook, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft to engage after he disclosed that the government was trying since September 5 to get these companies to formulate a strategy to check patently objectionable material that could trigger social/communal strife on their websites.

Sibal said that the companies had verbally agreed to some of the elements of a code discussed by the government but had now taken a position that they would only remove objectionable content if the court asked them to do so. The minister also said that on several occasions, these companies did not respond to proposals sent by the government.
