Yahoo and Bing Censorship to comply to India’s Information Technology Act

Home / Online Trends / Yahoo and Bing Censorship to comply to India’s Information Technology Act

As per this TechYoyo post, it looks like it’s not only Chinese or Australian censorship laws that is in the news. It’s now India’s turn, with Yahoo and Bing both censoring their search results to filter Sexually explicit content, or in some cases any reference to the word ‘sex’.

The clampdown is due to recent changes to India’s Information Technology Act of 2000, which bans the publication of pornographic material.

I wonder how long it’ll take before Google is forced to adopt similar filtering approaches for their Indian search results?
