To explain: NDTV stated that they handed over the petition to the President. *That* is what I would be interested in. Does that petition have a legal standing?
In addition, I wonder about the legalities involved with the privacy and ownership of these numbers. (I am not sure what to call this; Let me try the verbose way) I send an SMS says yes (or whatever). My cell number is recorded, and provided as a signatory to a petition.
How is the accuracy of this defined? How does one prove he did actually receive my SMS, and that he did not fabricate my number? Or does the onus lie with me, the alleged signatory?
Also, is my name and address automatically added to identify me as the signatory, or is it just a specific *number* of signatories to the petition that is presented?
Like I said, I am only wondering aloud… but I would love some answers.
