Abstract:     
Cloud computing is growing, and it is growing fast. But it is not new, and its roots are as old as computing itself – with significant history going back to the 1950s. However, because of the rapid growth of cloud computing, many regulatory authorities believe that it should be regulated and that new laws should be passed to control the perceived risks. This paper was written in the context of a proceeding at the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, which is considering regulatory models for cloud computing. We show that cloud computing is a powerful enabler of technology for consumers and SMEs worldwide, and regulators should use existing rules where possible so that the industry can develop. There are many laws and regulations in India that sufficiently protect consumers from breach of data, from breach of contract, theft, and from misuse of data.
