This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 91%. (I’m a bot)


May 25, 2021.SAN FRANCISCO – WhatsApp sued the Indian government on Wednesday to stop what it said were oppressive new internet rules that would require it to make people’s messages “Traceable” to outside parties for the first time.

The lawsuit, filed by WhatsApp in the Delhi High Court, seeks to block the enforceability of the rules that were handed down by the government this year.

Suing India’s government is a highly unusual step by WhatsApp, which has rarely engaged with national governments in court.
