Fed forecasts US slowdown

first_img PROSPECTS of an American recovery are less bright than previously thought, according to minutes of the most recent Federal Reserve (Fed) meeting, released last night.The Fed expects unemployment for next year of around 8.9–9.1 per cent, up from its last prediction of 8.3–8.7 per cent.Furthermore, its growth forecasts for 2011 fell to 3–3.6 per cent, down from 3.6–4.5 per cent. Despite low inflation, the Fed expects Core Personal Expenditure (PCE) of 1–1.1 per cent this year. The last forecast was for 0.8—1 per cent. All but one dissenting member supported monetary policies of quantitative easing (QE) combined with interest rates kept as low as possible.Yet the minutes reveal intense discussions over the second phase of quantitative easing (QE2).Several members thought further easing “could cause an undesirably large increase in inflation”.QE could provoke “unwanted downward pressure on the dollar”, said some members, and might “have only a limited effect on the pace of the recovery” and further monetary stimulus “would be warranted only if the outlook worsened and the odds of deflation increased materially,” the minutes say.

London still at top for metal trade

first_imgTuesday 8 March 2011 8:53 pm LONDON led the way last year as the top exchange centre for trading of non-ferrous metals, with a 90 per cent share of the record 120.3m contracts turned over. Overall, exchange trading of commodities such as gold and silver surged by 20 per cent in 2010 as their popularity as well as the ease of investing in them increased, according to data from financial membership body TheCityUK.In total commodity assets under management have now nearly doubled to $380bn (£235.1bn) at the end of the year, with the bulk invested in energy and precious metals. The value of global gold turnover increased by a quarter in 2010 to a record $25.1 trillion, while silver trading increased by 57 per cent to a record $3.2 trillion, as fears over the strength of the economic recovery saw a surge of interest in the perceived safe-haven appeal of precious metals. Daily reported net trading in gold on the London Bullion Market Association averaged $22.5bn in 2010, up 12 per cent on 2009.

Buy the dip? This is my view on the IAG share price today

first_img Stuart Blair has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. After a few months of optimism, worries of a European third Covid wave have once again put into doubt the recovery potential of airline stocks. Indeed, the IAG (LSE: IAG) share price has fallen around 14% over the past week due to such fears. But with the government aiming to restart non-essential travel on May 17, IAG shares may represent good value, especially following its recent dip. As such, is this a stock I’m willing to buy or do I think there’s too much risk?A potential UK third wave?Unlike the UK, the vaccination programme within the EU has been slow. The result of this has been rising cases within many of the member states. For example, in France, scientists believe that there could be up to 2,000 new cases of the South African variant, and this has prompted the country to implement a new partial lockdown. Boris Johnson has also admitted that the UK is likely to be affected by the rising cases within the EU.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Such news is incredibly bad for airlines such as IAG. Indeed, UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace has already admitted that there’s no guarantee foreign leisure travel will be allowed from May 17. This will potentially hamper rebounding bookings and flights may have to be cancelled once again. As such, I think that this worrying news will continue to place a strain on the IAG share price.Is there any hope?Right now, IAG is highly dependent on implementation of the UK’s roadmap back to normality. In certain respects, it looks very promising. Cases in the UK are currently low and Matt Hancock recently stated that the UK is ahead of roadmap dates.  As mentioned before though, there are risks of a third wave. Although the IAG share price may seem cheap, it’s important to consider this risk.  Aside from a potential return to normality this summer, the prospects for IAG are mainly negative. This is mainly due to the uncertainty that remains over its return to business. In its recent trading update, the company was unwilling to provide any profit guidance for 2021 due to such uncertainty. The full-year trading update also revealed an operating loss of around €7.5bn, and a 29% increase in net debt to nearly €10bn. Unless normality can return this summer, I’m worried about the long-term future of IAG. Am I buying IAG shares?The quick answer to this question is no! The IAG share price has been boosted over the past few months by vaccine optimism, but considering the circumstances, I now believe it’s overpriced. More Covid news may therefore continue to spook investors, and lead to more selling. Although the UK roadmap is positive, it doesn’t compel me to buy.Of course, normality could return this summer, and given the uncertainty out there, that’s perhaps as likely as the gloomier scenario. In that case, the IAG share price looks very cheap. But this isn’t guaranteed. As such, I’m not willing to take this risk and will look elsewhere for bargains.

Lo que reveló el debate del Partido Demócrata: Latinas/os, inmigrantes y elecciones

first_imgUn tema recurrente en las elecciones presidenciales del 2016 es la inmigración, especialmente en el lado republicano.La retórica inflamatoria del aspirante republicano Donald Trump es especialmente perversa con sus llamados a la construcción de un muro en la frontera sur de EUA, incitando al más terrible racismo.Pero los demócratas también plantean la inmigración, y fue un tema muy importante en el debate presidencial celebrado el 9 de marzo en Miami.El tema sobre la inmigración, la grandilocuencia racista de “construir el muro” por parte de Trump, junto con la crisis económica que ha dado paso a muchas dificultades, presenta a las/os latinos las preguntas: ¿qué camino tomar en esta temporada de elecciones? ¿Debe Trump ser descartado como un molesto mosquito? ¿Qué ganarán las/os latinos apoyando a los Demócratas? ¿Qué puede detener las deportaciones? ¿Cuál voto traerá empleos con buena paga, cuidado de salud asequible y educación para todas/os? ¿Quién puede detener el aburguesamiento de nuestras comunidades?La respuesta no se encuentra en la cabina de votación, sino en las calles. Se encuentra en la construcción de un movimiento, pero no cualquier movimiento, sino guiado por la conciencia de clase revolucionaria, un movimiento que sabe que para obtener beneficios reales para las/os latinos, la primera tarea es defender al movimiento Las Vidas Negras Importan.Demócratas y la base ‘hispana’El debate del Partido Demócrata del 9 de marzo tuvo lugar en Miami, donde la población es un 70% latina. Se orientó sobre todo hacia una audiencia principalmente latina y al clima social del sur de la Florida. Fue patrocinado por Univisión y el Washington Post y tuvo lugar en el Colegio de Miami-Dade.Univisión es la quinta cadena de televisión más grande en EUA, con una audiencia promedio de alrededor de 1,5 millones de adultos durante el horario estelar y, según su publicidad, supera a “una o más de las redes de habla inglesa [ABC, CBS, NBC o FOX] en dos de cada tres noches”.El debate fue realmente único. Fue bilingüe y se emitió simultáneamente en español por Univisión. Las/os interrogadores y moderadores a menudo hablaron en español antes de ser traducidas/os.Se llevó a cabo con un sabor latino a lo largo de la noche, que comenzó con el himno nacional estadounidense cantado por un joven mexicano-americano vestido con su traje de charro mariachi.Por supuesto, el himno nacional ofende a muchas/os que saben que el himno es en realidad una promesa al sistema imperialista.El niño era Sebastián de la Cruz, quien en el 2013 ya había captado atención nacional. Durante la fase final de la NBA de ese año, Sebastián cantó el himno nacional en un juego de los Spurs de San Antonio en Texas, también con su traje de mariachi. Inmediatamente, los racistas reaccionaron ofendidos porque había cantado esa canción vestido de mariachi.Hay que dar crédito a los Spurs, pues llevaron de nuevo a Sebastián unos días más tarde a otro juego como muestra de su apoyo al niño, al cual que se le había sido dicho que “regresara a su casa” y otras basuras racistas. Sebastián les contestó conmovedoramente “yo estoy en casa”.Una característica constante de las elecciones del Partido Demócrata es su búsqueda del voto latino. Este año no es la excepción. Lo mismo puede decirse de su búsqueda por el voto afroamericano.Por lo tanto, no es sorprendente que Sebastián fuera invitado para abrir el debate, con traje de charro y todo.Sin embargo, otros dejos latinos de la noche molestaron a una gran cantidad de latinas/os. Cuando Hillary Clinton declaró: “Yo dije, ‘Basta’”, sobre un pasado evento, las redes sociales enloquecieron.El Sun Times Network informó más tarde que la búsqueda de tendencia de Google buscando la palabra “basta” se elevó un 2,550 por ciento.Pero muchas/os activistas latinos se molestaron por el uso de spanglish por un político, especialmente uno que es una belicista, y quien no hace mucho caracterizó a los hombres africano-americanos como “súper depredadores”.El papel de Clinton en Honduras fue especialmente ofensivo, pues ella era parte de la administración de Washington que apoyó el derrocamiento del presidente constitucional Manuel Zelaya. Su salida conllevó una agitación social extrema, con al menos 25.000 muertes y un éxodo masivo para escapar de la violencia.¿Hillary Clinton tratando de complacer “hispanas/os”?En otro momento en el debate, la moderadora María Elena Salinas preguntó a Clinton si ella vacilaba sobre el tema de inmigración o “lo que algunos llamarían ‘hispandering’”. [nota de trad.: (hipócritamente) para buscar el apoyo latino]Hillary Clinton ha sido acusada de hispandering muchas veces. La palabra es en spanglish y refleja el interés falso por los problemas y la cultura latina para servir a sus propios intereses.El 10 de diciembre, la Radio Nacional Pública informó que Clinton fue acusada de esto, cuando ella se llamó “La Hillary” y “Tu Hillary”. En otra ocasión el año pasado, Clinton publicó un tweet con una foto de ella, Bill y su nieto, con la cita “Siete maneras en que Hillary es igual que tu abuela.”Otra cosa que hizo que el debate en Miami fuera diferente fue la participación de una mujer inmigrante de Guatemala que hizo una pregunta desde la audiencia.Aunque a diferencia de otras estaciones, Univisión a menudo representa los intereses de las/os latinos, sigue siendo una institución capitalista. Es también presa de los modos burgueses y rara vez pone latinas/os de piel oscura en la pantalla. También ha puesto a las personas de piel oscura o indígenas de las Américas en un papel negativo o de sirviente.Por eso, cuando Lucía Quiej hizo su pregunta, fue una alegría verla. Era bajita y oscura. Y hermosa.Tenía el aspecto de las personas que EUA ha sacrificados en Guatemala, al igual que alguien de la nación indígena Lenca, cuya líder Berta Cáceres, recientemente fue asesinada por los escuadrones de la muerte en Honduras que “La Hillary” ayudó a crear.Quiej preguntó a los candidatos qué harían sobre casos como el suyo, en que su marido había sido detenido y deportado por tener una licencia de conducir falsa. Sus hijos estaban sentados junto a ella, con lágrimas en los ojos.Ambos candidatos hablaron de reagrupación familiar.Durante la noche, las/os moderadores presionaron y obligaron a los candidatos a responder a la pregunta: “¿Deportarían a los niños” siendo presidente? Ambos dijeron que no, Sanders con más fuerza.Clinton repitió la opinión de que sólo los criminales o terroristas deberían ser deportados, pero, irónicamente, nadie señaló que bajo esas mismas directrices, el marido de Quiej aún sería deportado puesto que había “roto” la llamada ley de conducir sin licencia.Y nadie señaló el comentario insultante de Clinton en un debate a principios de este año cuando dijo que en EUA no podemos permitir más niños centroamericanos porque “tenemos que enviar un mensaje a los padres de que es peligroso enviar a los niños”. Esta es la arrogancia imperialista en su máxima expresión.Sanders sobre Nicaragua y CubaEl debate continuó con otro tema necesario mencionar. Fue una pregunta a Bernie Sanders sobre una entrevista en 1985 en la que alabó al gobierno sandinista de Daniel Ortega e hizo un comentario favorable sobre Fidel Castro.La respuesta de Sanders en su mayor parte fue progresista e importante para la televisión nacional.Pero Sanders caracterizó erróneamente a Cuba. Dijo que “Cuba es…un país autoritario, antidemocrático, y espero que…se convierta en un país democrático”.La verdad es que Cuba es, de hecho, más democrática que EUA. En Cuba, no se necesitan miles de millones de dólares para postularse a un cargo. Las políticas en Cuba son establecidas con el conjunto de la población; hay muchas elecciones, todas libres y justas; sus organizaciones de masas están directamente vinculadas con el gobierno; y así sucesivamente.Pero Sanders también dijo que Cuba ha educado a sus hijos, ha proporcionado atención médica gratuita, envía médicos a todo el mundo y ha “transformado totalmente la sociedad”.Lo más importante es que Sanders dijo a millones de personas, “A lo largo de la historia de nuestra relación con América Latina hemos operado bajo la llamada Doctrina Monroe, que dice que EUA tenía el derecho de hacer lo que quisiera en América Latina. Así que fui a Nicaragua y al poco tiempo me opuse a los esfuerzos de la administración Reagan para derrocar ese gobierno. Y antes, me opuse firmemente a Henry Kissinger … para derrocar al gobierno de Salvador Allende en Chile. … [Nosotros] debemos trabajar con los gobiernos de todo el mundo, no involucrarnos en cambios de régimen. La cuestión clave aquí es si EUA debería ir a derrocar a pequeños países de América Latina. Creo que eso fue un error”.Clinton, sin embargo, fue venenosa con sus mentiras contra Cuba socialista, afirmando que el gobierno cubano “oprime”, “desaparece”, “aprisiona” e “incluso mata a la gente” por expresar sus puntos de vista. La Red Nacional sobre Cuba ha exigido la corrección y la retracción de estas calumnias de Clinton.Cuando se tiene en cuenta que el debate se llevó a cabo en el condado de Dade, lleno de sentimiento anti revolucionario cubano, las observaciones de Sanders, a pesar de estar contaminadas por propaganda imperialista, fueron importantes. Al final del debate, de hecho, fue Sanders, no Clinton, quien recibió una ovación.El señalar el papel atroz de Henry Kissinger, buen amigo de Hillary Clinton, y para distinguirse de ella en el tema de Kissinger, también fue bueno.¿Es esto, junto a sus otras declaraciones progresistas razón suficiente para apoyar a Sanders? Esto es material para otro comentario.¡Liberación, no deportación!Pero el hispandering de Clinton, el hecho de que una administración demócrata haya deportado más que ningún otro presidente de EUA, el papel del gobierno de EUA en Honduras, el apoyo y la financiación para el baño de sangre que asola a México, su falta de intervención en las/os 43 desaparecidos de Ayotzinapa y las condiciones de deterioro de las/os trabajadores latinos en este país son razones más que suficientes para que las/os latinos rompan en masa con el Partido Demócrata.Pero para la reflexión, es también la incapacidad de Sanders de romper con el sistema capitalista, su fracaso por reconocer genuinamente el profundo impacto del racismo en la sociedad e ir más allá de la desigualdad de ingresos y apoyar la necesidad de indemnizaciones para las/os negros. Estos son sólo ejemplos más de la necesidad de romper con todos los demócratas.¿Qué pasaría si una sola vez cuando se le preguntara a  Sanders, ¿”Cómo se puede pagar la matrícula universitaria gratuita”?, dijera, ¡”Cerrar el Pentágono y tomar el dinero de ahí”!El sistema capitalista necesita deportaciones. Necesita racismo y guerra para sobrevivir. Los dos partidos han sobrevivido durante generaciones porque después de todo defienden los intereses capitalistas.Cada vez son más las/os latinos, especialmente los jóvenes, que reconocen que los políticos que cambian dependiendo de dónde sopla el viento no son las personas que pueden defenderles. Las/os jóvenes latinos han pasado por un período que les ha llevado a concluir, como dijo un joven en Chicago, ¡”Liberación, no deportación”!Es por ello que la campaña presidencial 2016 Moorehead / Lilly del Partido Workers World-Mundo Obrero dice que este sistema debe ser destruido para que la humanidad sobreviva.

Michael O’Leary’s Aer Lingus bid was never taking off

Another costly affair for Aer Lingus and a distraction for Ryanair, stymied once again by competition concerns expressed by the European Union.Officially this bid is alive until the EU’s competition commission makes its final decision in a few weeks but realistically the near €700 million takeover was never getting out of the departures lounge. That’s despite the flurry or activity by Ryanair in recent weeks to get two airlines – British Airways and Flybe – to take on overlapping routes flown by Aer Lingus.I’ve argued many times the business merits of Ryanair acquiring Aer Lingus makes some sense as could become the first true budget long-haul carrier and also give it access to key European airport hubs where it hasn’t been strong.But as always with events in Irish aviation this was a political non-flyer. Transport minister Leo Varadkar signalled in December that it wouldn’t sell its 25% stake in the company to Ryanair’s chief executive Michael O’Leary and that was it. The unions at Aer Lingus, its management team and the Irish tourism industry has always been against it. Against that quartet of opponents there was little likelihood of it going through.Past chief executives likes Willie Walsh have tried and failed to make Aer Lingus into a true European carrier with a nimbler cost base (and yes that means fewer workers) and a flexibility to adapt to the cyclical nature of the aviation business.Christoph Mueller, the current Aer Lingus boss, has made huge inroads in cost-cutting to make the company profitable. Its balance sheet is healthy enough, though a huge deficit in its employee pension fund could ruin that. But where does it go from here? European aviation is evolving. Bigger carriers are emerging. These global groups like British Airways/Iberia, Air France-KLM are the future, capable of competing with the growing airline powerhouses like Emirates and the giant American carriers. How long can Aer Lingus remain independent with these structural changes happening in the industry?This has been a costly business for Aer Lingus, more than €10 million on an army of financial, legal and media advisers. It has been time sapping for both airlines because of the engagement with Brussels’ competition officials.Michael O’Leary will not go away for long. There is a threat of an appeal by Ryanair to the European Court when the bid is formally blocked. But as long as the government objects to his takeover it will remain grounded. 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic WhatsApp Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th center_img Google+ WhatsApp Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR By admin – February 14, 2013 Pinterest Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Google+ News Facebooklast_img read more

This pandemic has brought us into a new normal. This ‘new normal’ has its majority existence working through online platforms. One such area deeply affected by the present situation and hotly debated in recent times is the issues of e-newspaper. At various places, the disruption regarding the physical disruption of newspaper has seen an increase in the use of e-newspaper, mostly available on the official website of the newspaper. The free forwarding of e-paper has been met by stiff resistance by the newspaper companies. This resistance was displayed by a local Hindi newspaper, Dainik Bhaskar [i], in its report which clearly cautions the readers, more specifically the group administrator of Whatsapp, not to circulate the e-paper PDF in groups, to which stringent action can be taken. This claim came as a surprise, with different opinions on both the side of debate. Several other online platforms like free press journal [ii], came up with another piece that sharing in PDF or any other form of paper is not an illegal act. This double opinion created confusion among the readers. The central organization of the Indian Press, Indian Newspaper Society (INS), gave a clear explanation that there is no problem to circulate the PDF Files which are free but there can be concern over copying a PDF from a paid e-paper. Two aspect of copyright which becomes very important in this scenario is that of first sale doctrine and implied license. Implied license and the First sale doctrine. There are instances where various practices on the internet are challenged, creating a conflicting interest between the user and creator. This conflict can generally be resolved through the mechanism of the implied license doctrine, permitting reasonable practices. This area of copyright has been consistently being put under challenge in the wake of the technological development. This development undoubtedly has increased the ambit of copying and transmitting the digital copies. Due to the nature of such infringement, it becomes impossible to have a just solution for such interest. Implied license doctrine, tries to give a just solution by allowing a reasonable exploitation of the work by one party providing an implicit consent for such use. Some arguments were also raised regarding the first sale doctrine application in the present context. First sale doctrine, more precisely, the exhaustion of right doctrine works after the lawful copies of the work have been distributed by sale or other transfer. But the stark difference arises out of the limitation in first sale doctrine which is generally limited only to dispose the original copies, not allowing any other manipulation. Implied license, on the other hand, gives the right to use the copies of the work in a manner feasible, the consent being implied [iii]. Can this implied license be taken as an exception for distribution the PDF files? The answer seems to be in both the sides. The aspect totally makes us agree on the point that the implied license is broader and much flexible, giving wider range of action over the copy. This wider range of action is subject to standard of reasonability. Will this standard of reasonability depends upon the contractual commitments between the parties? If yes, then one can conclude that implied license will only work when there is a contractual relation between the parties, which is not. Even if there is no contractual commitment between the two parties, implied license still persist. But this implied license will only work till the time there is no contractual commitment which clearly specifies the opposite. Therefore, if there is any contract which strictly specifies regarding not to transmit the digital copies further, the person ceases to have an implied license for forwarding the e-copy. Even if the implied license does provide an implicit consent to use the copy in a reasonable manner, it becomes limited as soon as there will be a contractual commitment clearly specifying not to forward [iv]. Copyright act and Information Technology act Every newspaper has its own copyright over the content as it is their own expression, the idea remains the same. Giving the argument of free speech and the public dissemination of news, which is by default the primary aim of the newspaper, cannot take over the copyright issues under this condition. The relatable confusion does arise over the interplay of Copyright act 1957 and Information Technology act 2000. Many platforms talked about the liability of the Whatsapp group administrator in case there is forwarding of content. There can be no dispute over such an aspect which is already been settled by the court. In Ashish Bhalla vs. Suresh Chawdhary[v], the Delhi High Court ruled that the Whatsapp group administrator is not responsible for the content posted on the group by others. It was a welcome move by the Delhi HC, stating that no one can be held liable for something to which he or she has no control. This is similar to making a manufacturer of the newsprint, on which defamatory statement are published, liable for defamation, even if he or she has no hand in making that defamatory statement. Hence, making group contender liable for this will not be a good idea, as contended by Dainik Bhaskar. The arguments regarding the Information Technology (IT) act also does not hold good. The Section 79 of the act talks about the exemption from liability of intermediary in certain cases, for any third party information, data or communication. The intermediary in the present case is the social media platform on which the content is forwarded. If we read section 43, it talks about the penalty for damages which occur by accessing or even downloading data from computer. On the other side, if we read section 66B, it also talks about the punishment for dishonestly receiving computer resources. But both the act supplements itself with the word, like ‘without permission’ or ‘dishonestly’. In neither case, the liability of IT act will apply to any of the member of group, since even if the person downloads either freely or by accepting the terms, both instances can’t be termed as ‘dishonest practice’. But if we read proviso to section 81 of the act, it clearly specifies that this act will not restrict any person from exercising any right under the copyright act or patents act, which ultimately gives an ample scope to newspaper authorities to defend their arguments, leaving less scope for the IT act to interplay. Talking about the copyright act, some section can be very important for this discussion. Reading section 52(1) (a) (ii) & (iii) provides us with the exemption from infringing copyright if there is a fair deal of work for the purpose of criticism and review or for reporting current events or current affairs. This way copyright does provide an exemption from the infringement process. The same section also provides other instances in favour of newspaper authority. Section 52(1)(c) says that transient and incidental storage or work for the purpose of providing electronic links, access or integration, where such links, access or integration ‘has not been expressly prohibited by the right holder’, will be exempted from copyright infringement. This section expressly mentions that the storage of a work, for providing electronic link, access or integration will be exempted from the infringement unless there has been an express prohibition by the right holder. Hence, this become crystal clear that if the e-papers come up with a disclaimer, agreeing to which it will be downloaded; section 52(1) (c) ceases to apply. The user will not get benefit of section 52(1) (c). Nevertheless, the user can get benefit of section 52(1)(a)(ii) &(iii), if it can be proved that this forwarding is for the very purpose of criticism or review, which seems impossible in all instances. Conclusion Some of the newspaper like The Statesman or The Hindu’s e-paper comes up with its terms of not sharing this paper with anyone. Well they also specified that this condition will not apply for purpose of initiating discussion and expressing opinion, thereby giving scope of Section 52(1) (a) (iii) of the copyright act. As soon as the user downloads the e-paper of any newspaper which already has a term of use, the implied license ceases to apply. The user can do anything except circulating it. But on the other side, if it becomes freely downloadable copy, without any term of use, the implied license will act to the extent of even circulating it. This issue can be hotly debated as to what constitutes the ‘extent’ of implied license. However, in the present condition, this ‘extension’ is purely dependent upon the terms attached with the paper. It will be a mistake if we consider it as an implicit consent of the copyright holder.Views Are Personal Only.(Author is pursuing LL.M from Rajiv Gandhi School of Intellectual Property Law, IIT Kharagpur) [i]. https://www.bhaskar.com/local/delhi-ncr/news/it-is-illegal-to-broadcast-pdf-copy-of-newspaper-in-whatsapp-group-action-can-be-taken-on-group-admin-127264950.html [ii]. https://www.freepressjournal.in/india/fpj-clarification-there-is-no-ban-on-sharing-the-free-press-journal-e-papers-pdf-on-whatsapp-telegram-or-any-social-media [iii].
