As the IT Rules 2021 come into effect, we have seen different reactions to it from the stakeholders affected by it. Bunch of them challenged the rules in the courts, some of them decided to comply.
While it is good to see platforms/organizations fight back, the broader internet community has been silent about the entire thing. And if there is no outrage from the community, soon platforms will cave in too.
The situation calls for a public campaign on the lines of #savetheinternet. We can not rely on platforms, or courts for that matter, to decide for us. The government is drawing up bad laws in our name and it needs to stop.
