School Cyberstalking, homophobic statements, outpouring of hatred…Social networks and other online content sharing platforms (Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, etc.) are too often at the epicentre of controversies. Between respecting freedom of expression and protecting other citizens’ rights through adapted regulation as an acknowledged necessity, what is the appropriate level of platforms’ liability regime given their role and weight in society ?
Do the current European legal framework and the self-regulatory measures already put in place by the social networks (moderation, reporting procedures, etc) allow to efficiently fight against the illegal content phenomenon?
On this issue, the CSA.Be is providing its own opinion: the Authority made a recent submission in a public Guidance note. Other initiatives have been taken in Germany and in France notably and there are ongoing reflections at European Union level, including in the public consultation on the Digital Services Act package that the European Commission launched a few weeks ago.
Through this first “CSA Media Talks”, the CSA.Be is providing you with a critical overview of the current situation on this issue. This event will gather several below mentioned guest speakers who will put the spotlight on some tangible paths which can be considered today for fighting illegal content on the internet. Presentations will be made either in English or in French.
Join the online meeting on Wednesday 1st July starting at 12:00 until 14:00
🕛 Schedule : Wednesday 1 July / 12:00 – 14:00
