Me scared..Are you ?
Read this recently on Kaps's site.
Media reports disappear after a few days ?
Also read his other blog on what Indian Media officials had to say and it looks like a few things are on the horizon
a. Indian print media folks recognize blogs as a potential threat to print journalism
b. They would like to put "censorship" on blogs (havent heard of any other country trying to regulate blogs, other than military blogs or things that affect national security !!)
c. there are concerns about the internet media returning the investment !!
Made me laugh out loud first. The typical Indian business mentality is an expectation of instant ROI (return on investment). This is the reason why you see companies like Intel still struggling to set up a manufacturing plant in India !!
Secondly, India might actually succeed in Banning or censoring blogs altogether. India can do a lot of things that other countries can only dream of.. Just kidding..
That thought actually scared me. At the end of the day the Print media has enough clout over the virtual media. Is this report a note of caution to all bloggers to watch what they write, have disclaimers, have legal counsel ready or should we all turn on Ads on our blogs to show that we are a business enterprise generating revenue ???
Next thing on my Agenda : Come up with a nice disclaimer for my blog.
