Block search results, remove identical content and more: Delhi High Court

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday issued guidelines aimed at meaningfully acting against the publication of unauthorised or offensive content on the internet (X v Union of India and ors)

The order was passed by Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani, who opined that for an order directing the removal of offending internet content to be effective, "a search engine must block the search results throughout the world."

"No purpose would be served by issuing such an order if it has no realistic prospect of preventing irreparable harm to a litigant," the judge further observed.
