Asserting that the Centre must immediately come up with a memorandum in the matter, the Supreme Court will hear the matter again on July 25. “Can these search engines continue to violate the law? Is there nothing that can be done to completely stop them? Google, Microsoft, Yahoo can’t continue doing the illegal activity in the name of being an intermediary,” the Apex Court observed today.

The PIL was filed by Sabu Mathew George, which sought court intervention to get the government to crack down on advertisement of sex-determination kits, tools and clinics on these sites. The PIL has alleged, sex-determination ads and links were freely available on the search engines, defeating the very purpose of the law.
