Amid strong protests raised at the parliament of India by the opposition party, the Indian government has ordered an investigation into the alleged Walmart lobbying issue. This raises a genuine question: are Indian and international e-commerce players flouting Indian laws?

Perry4Law has already shared a legal research report regarding business structuring of e-commerce in India. It seems Indian e-commerce, FDI regulations and cyber due diligence are not complied with by various national and international e-commerce players as on date.

E-Commerce Laws and Regulations in India and FDI Regulations are two of the most common Regulations governing E-Commerce in India, says Praveen Dalal, managing partner of ICT law firm Perry4Law. While Indian and International E-Commerce players are well aware of FDI Regulations yet E-Commerce Laws of India are still not followed by and large, opines Dalal.

Cyber Law In India For Facebook And Google

Facebook and Google are Internet intermediaries within the meaning of cyber law of India. As internet intermediaries, Facebook and Google are required to comply with various national and international laws.

Internet intermediaries in India are required to follow certain due diligence requirements under the cyber law of India incorporated in the information technology act, 2000 (IT Act 2000). If they fail to observe such cyber due diligence, the safe harbour protection available under the IT Act 2000 is lost.

While pre screening of contents and expecting Internet intermediaries like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, YouTube, Linkedin, etc to keep a vigil watch upon the Internet is simply unreasonable and unrealistic yet asking Internet intermediaries to block or remove offending contents, after they have been duly notified in this regard, is a genuine need and reasonable demand.

Such removal or non removal of objectionable and offending contents cannot be considered to be right or wrong as per Internet intermediaries or Indian government’s viewpoint. Rather an independent analysis of the same must be made by courts keeping in mind the facts and applicable laws.

Further, there must be uniformity in application of Indian laws to all in similar situations. If there is a discrimination against foreign companies and favour for domestic companies, this undermines the confidence and trust of online community world over. For instance, recently Reliance and Airtel blocked websites in India whose legality is still doubtful. Department of information technology (DIT) must investigate such blocking in order to rule out favoritism for domestic companies.

It has also been reported that social media websites users in other states of India are planning to engage in legal battles in such states to access any blockage of such websites. Legally they can do so but in the long run such a move would be counter productive.

In the past, the argument of being a subsidiary has kicked back and now the parent company has to face the trial. Even if the subsidiaries are exempted from any criminal liability, the liability of parent company is now emerging as an even bigger issue. Let us see how Indian Courts would decide these cases.
