MUMBAI: The Delhi High Court has dismissed a plea that sought for framing of guidelines for the working of OTT platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hotstar, according to a Press Trust of India report.
The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting told the bench that online platforms do not need a licence to operate after which the petition was rejected.
According to a PTI report, the petitioner NGO Justice for Rights Foundation claimed that the platforms show "uncertified, ***ually explicit and vulgar" content that aren't for for public viewing. It mentioned shoes like Sacred Games, Game of Thrones and Spartacus as having vulgar, profane, ***ually explicit, ****ographic, morally unethical and virulent content which often objectify women.
The petitioner also wanted the court to get the ministries to frame guidelines for the platforms and their content and even make them remove such restricted content.
