The legal team at IFF has been working hard to address important digital rights issues, such as internet shutdowns, mandatory imposition of Aarogya Setu, illegal website blocking, unlawful spying and use of facial recognition technology. In 2020 and 2021, we brought these issues to the attention of Constitutional Courts. This year, we are seeing the fruits of our labour, with positive outcomes from cases filed in previous years and additional victories that have advanced the digital rights of every Indian. For example, Mr. Tanul Thakur's case against the illegal ban on his website was filed in 2019 and saw positive outcomes in 2022. Additionally, our sustained efforts have resulted in 5 more important victories this year, all of which we have summarised in this post below.
