In episode seven of Justify Season 2, Dr Arghya Sengupta speaks to Rahul Matthan, Partner at Trilegal and a leading thinker on law and technology in India, on WhatsApp’s new privacy policy, whether the application should be treated as a public utility, and the issue of lack of user consent.

The questions addressed include whether Signal will have the same problem as WhatsApp if and when it becomes as big, and whether user consent on these platforms as a ‘take-the-service-or-leave-it’ choice is really meaningful.
