Court: Facebook Can Block Content Without Explanation

A US court has ruled that Facebook can block any content it likes, without explanation. “The San Francisco court ruling followed a lawsuit filed against the social media giant by ‘Sikhs For Justice’ (SFJ), which claimed that Facebook had blocked its page in India for advocating Sikh separatism, particularly its campaign against the ‘persecution of Sikhs and for promoting a Sikh referendum in the Indian state of Punjab.’ The Indian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology and the national government have already tried to block the page for displaying ‘objectionable content.’”
