IIPM and IPC Section 499

The legal notice sent by IIPM to Rashmi Bansal, editor of JAM, is not available to us, butthe ones sent to Gaurav and Varna are. Under which section of the Indian Penal Code would they be sued? Section 499, as far as I know, because it deals with defamation. I am no lawyer but am trying to exercise my brains here. Check out the link and struggle with the legalities. It will be great fun, I tell you.

For one, it can be said that JAM, Rashmi, Gaurav, Varna, Desipundit and everone has done this in the favour of "public good", which exempts everyone from any allegation of committing "defamation" on IIPM.

Reading the Indian Penal Code is one of my favourite pastimes!

Also have a look at Praveen Dalal's 'Cyber Law Forum' blog.

Have a look at some other resources: The Hoot's legal ready reckoner; the website of the Ministry of Information Technology; the IT Act; amendments in the IT Act that are likely to be passed in the winter session of the Parliament; and the sundry policies and rules of the IT Ministry.

Huh, quite some work!

Thanks for the IPC link Shivam. I have been reading it for the last 30 minutes. I suppose, it'll become my favourite pastime too!
