by Prasad Krishna published Mar 10, 2015 — filed under:
It was a daylong tussle between uploads and takedowns. Netizens kept uploading the controversial BBC documentary, 'India's Daughter', on video-sharing websites even as several of them were blocked within hours on Thursday. By 9pm, the hour-long film had been removed from at least four locations on YouTube. One of them had already gathered over 1.04 lakh views by then. The documentary which deals with the December 16 Nirbhaya rape case was still available on another video-sharing website, dailymotion.com, where two of three such uploads even had an advertisement preceding the video. It could also be seen on vimeo.com, another video-sharing service.

by Saumyaa Naidu published Aug 18, 2018 last modified Aug 22, 2018 01:16 PM — filed under: ,
Nudging in privacy notices can be a privacy-enhancing tool. For example, informing users of how many people would have access to their data would help them make a decision. However, nudges can also be used to influence users towards making choices that compromise their privacy. For example, the visual design of default options on digital platforms currently nudge users to share their data. It is critical to ensure that there is mindful use of nudges, and that it is directed at the well being of the users.
