Facebook files compliance report before court

Facebook India today filed its compliance report before the Delhi court which had ordered it and 21 other websites to remove objectionable content from their websites.

Google India also claimed that it has removed certain web pages from the internet on which objections were raised by the petitioners.

Meanwhile, Facebook, Yahoo and Microsoft told the court that they have no role to play in the case and that there is no cause of action against them in the matter.

Additional Civil Judge Praveen Singh also posed a query to the counsel appearing for the petitioner Mufti Ajiaz Arshad Qasmi, as to whether the blog service-providing companies can be made a party to the case for the content posted by the users on the blogs.

 The court, which will further hear the matter in the afternoon, asked Google Inc as to why it was not coming up properly  with a reply and brushed aside its contention that it had received the copy of its judgement and other documents related to the case only on last Friday.

The court said that why the Google Inc is not coming forward with a proper reply.

The court also asked the petitioners to supply all the documents that was relied upon, to all the opposite parties.

The court had on December 20 last year, in a ex-parte order issued summons to 22 social networking websites asking them to remove anti-religious or anti-social content in the form of photographs, videos or text which might hurt the religious feelings.

In had on December 24 set February 6 as deadline for the websites for the same.
