A developer backed by Chinese cybersecurity giant 360 Security Technology Inc. has introduced a browser that allows mainland Chinese users to access previously blocked sites like Google and Facebook, partially bypassing Beijing’s Great Firewall.

The browser, named Tuber, requires mobile number registration before use. That makes users browsing activities traceable and can identify people because smartphone numbers are linked to unique Chinese identification numbers.

Blocked websites that can be accessed via Tuber include YouTube, Instagram and The New York Times.

The app appears to be providing a government-approved platform for the nation’s 904 million netizens to legally visit overseas websites.

Mainland Chinese use virtual private networks, or VPNs, to bypass the Great Firewall — the name given to the entity which has blocked an array of foreign Internet services, from Gmail to Twitter, for over a decade.

China regularly cracks down on illegal VPN services, eliminating VPN apps from the

BENGALURU (Reuters) – Tata Consultancy Services said on Wednesday it would buy back shares worth up to 160 billion rupees ($2.18 billion), and reported a fall in quarterly profit as it set aside 12.18 billion rupees to cover legal fees related to a U.S. lawsuit.

The company also named Samir Seksaria as its chief financial officer, choosing the over two-decade veteran of India’s top software exporter to replace V. Ramakrishnan who will retire in April next year.

TCS said it would buy back up to 53.3 million shares at 3,000 rupees per share, a 9.7% premium to its stock’s closing price on Wednesday.

  • Workers at chains including Whataburger, Ralphs, and Whole Foods are fighting for their right to wear Black Lives Matter masks and other gear on the job. 
  • Employers have the right to create dress codes that prevent workers from wearing clothing with any sort of messaging, according to employment and discrimination attorney Wendy Greene. 
  • However, if these policies are not regularly enforced, employers could be subject to discrimination claims. 
  • “Even though generally, employers are within their legal rights to bar employees from wearing ‘Black Lives Matter’ masks and shirts, employers should shift the focus from whether I can legally do so to should I do so?” Greene said.

The three Chinese banks that had dragged Anil Ambani to a UK court will now pursue all available legal avenues to recover the full judgment debt of nearly $717-million from the embattled businessman.

However, legal sources close to Reliance Group said Ambani has made full and fair disclosure of all his assets and liabilities in the UK Court and he personally holds no assets outside India.

Last week, Ambani had appeared before the English High Court for compulsory cross-examination in an order obtained by the three banks — Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, Export-Import Bank of China and China Development Bank — earlier.

The counsel for the banks cross-examined the Chairman of beleaguered telecom company Reliance Communications on his financial means.

“The banks will use the information from the cross-examination to pursue all available legal avenues to protect their rights and recover the outstanding loans owed to them,” a

And now for something completely different: Bill Murray is being threatened by ’70s mellow rock band The Doobie Brothers for unlicensed use of their song “Listen to the Music” in an advertisement for his golf shirts.

In a filing unearthed by The Hollywood Reporter, the easygoing band surprisingly bares its fangs–their attorney Peter Paterno chastises Murray, writing: “It seems like the only person who uses our clients’ music without permission more than you do is Donald Trump… We’d almost be OK with it if the shirts weren’t so damn ugly.”

For those who didn’t even realize Bill Murray has a golf-shirt business, you can go over to William Murray Golf’s official website and decide for yourself about the actor’s sartorial tastes. However, to be fair, it should be noted that golf is a sport where wardrobes are typically garish–anyone who has ever caddied for a summer knows this all too

Two cases with ties to Northeast Ohio are part of this Forbes analysis of the “indelible mark on American business” made by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Friday night, Sept. 18.

Forbes says that over the course of more than six decades in the law, Ginsburg “worked tirelessly to break down gender discrimination in American life and work, and to bring fairness to business.”

It then breaks down some of the most influential cases she was involved with, starting with Ledbetter vs. Goodyear, a landmark 2007 Supreme Court case in which Lilly Ledbetter accused Akron-based Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. of gender discrimination, alleging she was given a lower salary because she is a woman.

From the analysis:

Ledbetter lost, but not because of the merits of the case. The 5-4 majority ruled against Ledbetter because she didn’t file her claim within the required time period.

In June, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal joined more than 40 other states in suing drugmakers over an alleged multiyear price-fixing scheme, accusing the companies of colluding to jack up prices on topical medications.

Among the more than two dozen firms named in the lawsuit were 15 New Jersey pharmaceutical companies.

According to the complaint, officials at those companies regularly exchanged phone calls and text messages, and sometimes met at “posh” industry dinners, as they worked to set prices and avoid bidding against each other on the generic medications they manufacture.

The attorney general’s office called the collusion “rampant” and said the profits made from the scheme were significant.

But even as that investigation was unfolding, two of the New Jersey companies, G&W Laboratories and Teligent, were approved for millions of dollars in government-backed coronavirus relief loans, federal records show. Both were granted forgivable loans in April under the

* New antitrust case is Amazon’s latest India challenge

* Indian online seller group alleges discrimination

* Amazon has said it complies with all laws

* Amazon has invested $6.5 bln in India, its key market

By Aditya Kalra

NEW DELHI, Aug 26 (Reuters) – A group of more than 2,000 online sellers has filed an antitrust case against Amazon in India, alleging the U.S. company favours some retailers whose online discounts drive independent vendors out of business, a legal filing seen by Reuters showed.

The case presents a new regulatory challenge for Amazon in India, where it has committed $6.5 billion in investment but is battling a complex regulatory environment.

In January, the Competition Commission of India (CCI) had ordered an investigation of Amazon and rival Flipkart, owned by Walmart, over alleged violations of competition law and certain discounting practices, which Amazon is
