Web censorship row: Delhi HC dismisses charges against Microsoft India

In a major relief to the Internet companies locked in web censorship row, the Delhi High Court has rejected charges of hosting offensive content against Microsoft India. The HC accepted Microsoft India’s plea that the company did not provide a material to users to interact with each other or post their views. The court further asked the complainant Vinay Rai to file a fresh complaint if he comes across any credible evidence against the website.

Earlier, Rai had moved the trial court against as many as 21 websites including Microsoft, Facebook, Google and YouTube for allegedly hosting offensive content. Metropolitan Magistrate Sudesh Kumar had issued summons to the companies to face the charges of hosting obscene content punishable under the IPC 292 (sale of obscene books and material) and 293 (sale of obscene objects to young person). The trial court observed that the evidences provided by the complainant contained obscene images and
offensive articles related to religious deities.

Microsoft: Five things to look for in 2012

Next year is one of those years that can’t come soon enough for Microsoft.

It’s not that 2011 was a particularly difficult year. The company posted record revenue for the fiscal year that ended June 30. And its 2-year-old PC operating system, Windows 7, hit 500 million copies sold, further embedding it as the most widely used operating system in the world. But 2011 had few big product launches at the company, Office 365 and Internet Explored 9 notwithstanding.

Next year will be altogether different. Microsoft is prepping the big kahuna of its product arsenal, Windows 8. The company hasn’t set a date, though most analysts expect the flagship operating system to debut before the end of the year, and perhaps in time for back-to-school shopping. From that product, much else from Redmond flows.

So here are five things to look for from Microsoft in 2012:

1.      Windows 8 tablet

2.      Xbox moves farther into live TV

3.      Windows Phone: We’re No. 3

4.      Patent litigation aggressor

5.      Growing search through social
