INDIA—The Indian government has told the Supreme Court that it is difficult to block websites that are hosted in foreign countries, and said it needs more time to consider ways to implement a ban on sites that have porn and other stuff they don’t like.

“In response,” reported the Times of India, “the apex court has advised the government to work with various ministries to find a solution for this issue.”

This interaction comes on the heels of last month’s order by the country’s Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to ban “39 websites that allow users to share pornographic content.”

Among them may be “an amendment to the IT Act so as to make pornography on computer or mobile a crime, attracting severe punishment to the producers, distributors and viewers of such sites.”
