When Big Tech denounced former US President Donald Trump from various platforms and refused to restore access for him despite several warnings, one thing was clear: One cannot win against the world's largest internet companies with firing tweets, issuing notices, or threats. A strong data protection law and a dedicated cyber regulator can only control them. The criticism against Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, and the rest for not fully complying with the new IT (Intermediary Guidelines) rules 2021 is simmering and several agencies, top courts, Delhi Police, the National Commission for Women (NCW), and other stakeholders are busy trying to fix them.
Big Tech, however, is not going to give up easily as WhatsApp (which is a subsidiary of Facebook), while using the Indian government in late May, made it clear that "we will maintain this approach until at least the forthcoming PDP (personal data protection) law comes into effect". The reality is that Big Tech is geared up for a long-haul flight with the Narendra Modi-led government. They have deep pockets and top legal resources to carry on with this situation for months. A strong data privacy law, on the lines of the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), is still lost somewhere in the files and the social media platforms know this very well, hence playing the cat and mouse game with the Centre.
According to cyberlaw expert and lawyer Virag Gupta, the affidavit filed by MeitY (IT Ministry) before the Delhi High Court is a landmark one from the aspect of digital jurisprudence in the country. "IT intermediary rules exist since 2011 but for the last 10 years, they were never enforced in letter and spirit. Now, new IT rules are the law of the land and must be complied with by the tech giants. It reflects the government's determination to protect the sovereign power of India before foreign tech giants," Gupta told IANS.
Any non-compliance amounts to a breach of the provisions of the IT rules 2021 will lead to social media giants losing their immunity conferred under Section 79(1) of the IT Act, 2000. According to Gupta, the affidavit on behalf of the government will empower crores of digital issuers in India to protect their rights before foreign tech giants.
"The affidavit clearly states that all the significant social media platforms must comply with new IT rules, concerning Grievance Officer, Nodal Officer, and Compliance Officer, with physical contact address, contact details should be strictly enforced against all tech giants including Twitter," Gupta informed. Seasoned Supreme Court lawyer Pavan Duggal said that India needs to come up with effective legal provisions stipulating the consequences to be faced by social media companies, in case they fail to comply with new IT rules.

"The government needs to strictly implement the removal of the statutory exemption from legal liability of social media intermediaries once they fail to comply with the Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021 under Rule 7 thereof," Duggal told IANS. "This provision needs to be thoroughly implemented to force the social media companies to adopt more cogent methodologies, procedures, and processes to fight growing fake news/misinformation on their platforms," he further emphasized.
India is yet to fine social media platforms even Re 1, at a time when they continue to face millions of dollars and euros in penalties across the globe over data privacy and protection failures. The truth is that to effectively deal with the leading internet firms, a nodal cyber regulator, and clearing the path for the personal data protection bill is the need of the hour, experts emphasized. Till then, the matter will jump from one court to another, with several agencies aiming to grab headlines, and internet companies will never get their act together on data privacy and compliance in India.

Facing intense scrutiny over the presence of bad accounts and troll armies on its platform globally including in India, Twitter has announced to establish a legal entity in Turkey to continue operating there under the country’s internet law that came into place last year.
Under the new law, social media firms that have more than one million users must store the users’ data in the country.
Twitter said in a statement that in a continuing effort to provide its service in Turkey, “we have decided to establish a legal entity”.

“We will continue to work to protect the public conversation in Turkey, empowering people to have access to that conversation, and advocating for our values,” the micro-blogging platform added.
India has also raised similar demands from Twitter to keep its platform sanitized for meaningful conversations and remove bad accounts.
The Indian government last month announced new stringent guidelines for social media platforms along with a code of ethics for over-the-top (OTT) platforms and digital media.
According to Union Electronics and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, social media platforms will be classified under two categories — social media intermediaries and significant social media intermediaries — with the latter being subject to greater obligations.
The new Intermediary Liability Rules ask social media companies with over 5 million users in India to not only enable traceability of end-to-end encrypted messages but also establish local offices with senior officials to deal with law enforcement and user grievances.
Twitter said, in reference to Turkey, that the company is “committed to protecting and defending the Open Internet, and as part of this work, have called for the establishment of regional and global standards for online services”.
“We believe that global and not fragmented frameworks protect online communities and their rights and ensure they can experience the Internet in the same way across the world,” the Jack Dorsey-run company noted.
The Indian Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules 2021 mandate that the intermediaries, including social media intermediaries, must establish a grievance redressal mechanism for receiving resolving complaints from the users or victims.
Intermediaries will have to appoint a Grievance Officer to deal with such complaints and share the name and contact details of such officer.
“Grievance Officer shall acknowledge the complaint within 24 hours and resolve it within 15 days from its receipt,” said an official statement. (IANS/KB)
