Subject description: The new rules as part of efforts to step up the bloc's security
 

https://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory/eu-give-internet-firms-hour-remove-extremist-content-57768368

European authorities are planning to slap internet companies like Google, Twitter and Facebook with big fines if they don't take down extremist content within one hour.

Removing material within an hour is important because it's "the critical window in which the greatest damage is done."

Under the proposal, internet companies would have to take measures, including installing automated systems, to prevent content from being re-uploaded after being removed the first time. Companies that fail to comply would face fines of up to 4 percent of their annual global turnover.

For Google, which owns YouTube, that could amount to as much as $4.4 billion, based on parent company Alphabet Inc.'s $110.9 billion in revenue for 2017.


Now we know that social media is a propaganda tool for a number of political organizations, as well as the main source of information for some population. Fake news can be a time bomb.

Yes, especially when distributed by official/mainstream media! Wink

Hi labbe5.

I could not find the expression "time bomb" in the ABC article, so it is a
comment by you, yes?

Very strange comment. I suppose that by contrast, real news are bombs
that go off immediately?

May I suggest that this metaphor is in very bad taste?

Respectfully.

@all:

If anybody has the patience to let the video load, here is the "official"
speech by J.-C. Juncker : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dLDF0LRuZs

This 55 minutes video of Mr. Juncker's speech is still trying to load on my
machine after 10 minutes, so I have not viewed it. Maybe you have to be
from Europe to view it? Bah.

BFN.

The "fake new war" is an agenda of the elite to stop user generated contents on the web and take control over the social media. It's a trick to give some boundaries to freedom of speech.

Yes: user generated contents is the 'secret phrase'.

If there's any extremist content or hate speech, there's Laws and Courts to justify and to instruct the removal of such contents.

Doesn't this violate the legal principle of innocent until proven guilty. One hour is certainly not enough time to have a fair hearing and large tech firms don't give fair impartial hearing anyway. They will error on the side of caution and over-censor.
