Report: Amazon, Netflix mulling censorship code for online content in India

Netflix Inc., Inc. and STAR India Pvt. Ltd.'s Hotstar are exploring a voluntary censorship code in India for online content, The Economic Times (India) reported, citing three people familiar with the matter.

Stakeholders of the video-on-demand industry reportedly met in New Delhi Sept. 4, to discuss the possibility of such a code amid rising concerns about regulatory uncertainties in India.

The code will ensure that the content offered by the platforms are free of hate crimes, child pornography, and other inappropriate matter.

Methods of controlling piracy and separating streaming content from digital broadcasts were also part of the conversation, according to the report.

Online content is not bound by law in the country and there is no regulation barring films and shows streamed online.

Meanwhile, social media giant Facebook Inc. is also considering an arrangement that allows it to review content that could be seen as problematic and lead to violence in India.
