High Court asks Google India to furnish information about a blogger

Mumbai-based Gremach Infrastructure Equipments & Projects has filed a lawsuit in Bombay High Court against Google India for hosting a series of articles on its blogging site, campaigning against its mines in Mozambique. In an interim order, the High Court has asked Google India to furnish information about the blogger.

In its petition, Gremach said a series of articles titled ‘Toxic Writer’ were posted on Google’s blogging site between January and February. The articles amounted to a “hate campaign” against the company, claims Gremach.

In its petition, Gremach said a series of articles titled ‘Toxic Writer’ were posted on Google’s blogging site between January and February. The articles amounted to a “hate campaign” against the company, claims Gremach.

Suspecting corporate rivalry behind the ‘hate’ campaign, Gremach sought help from the Mumbai Police’s cyber crime cell. However, the investigations by the local police hit a dead end after Google’s India office reportedly refused to co-operate. Gremach then moved Bombay High Court against Google India, seeking information about the blogger. [Source: Economic Times]
