The folly of an ‘atmanirbhar’ internet: IE

Essence: As per the author, there are parallels between the Russian and Indian attempts to regulate Big Tech and to achieve the objective of internet sovereignty. Both countries mandate major platforms to have several officials be physically located within the country to address the government’s complaints and platforms are criminally liable for content on the platform for failure to comply with the rules. 

As per the author, such a regulation is against the following principles. First, democracies must curb the media that spreads disinformation. Second, the internet, by definition, is a globally connected digital common, thus “Atmanirbhar Internet” is contradictory.  

Why should you read this article? 

  • To understand the parallels between Russian and Indian attempts to regulate big tech.
  • To know about the authors arguments against such regulations.
