In compliance with the new India IT Rules, 2021, Google removed 1,11,493 harmful items of information in June of this year.
Google’s Monthly Transparency Report states that the majority of the information that was taken down was due to copyright violations, with the remaining material falling under other categories such as trademarks, court orders, explicit sexual content, fraud, and others.
The internet service provider got 32,717 complaints from inhabitants of the nation during the same time period concerning external content they claimed violated their national or local legal rights on various Google platforms. The complaints might be categorized in a variety of ways.
Google states that some requests may include claims of intellectual property rights violations, while others may assert that local laws limiting the dissemination of specific sorts of material due to factors like defamation had been broken.
In addition to what users report, the firm claimed in its monthly compliance report, “We significantly spend in combatting dangerous information online and applying technology to detect and remove it from our platform.”
528,846 accounts nationwide were deleted when the corporation added its automatic identification procedures. We spend a lot of money battling bad online material, and we employ technology to find it and remove it from our platform.
The dissemination of bad information, such as child sex abuse material and violent extremist content, will be stopped by certain of our goods, according to Google, which said that these products will employ automatic recognition procedures.
This report lists the complaints that Google received and the responses provided within the designated one-month reporting period. The actions were carried out as a result of the SSMI platforms for Google using automated detection techniques.
Information from June 1 to June 30 is covered by the time frame. Google may continue to release monthly transparency reports in the future.
