three major developments over the past day demonstrate how #Europe seeks to shape the global #Internet. if you only focus on US reg, dominated by politics & not law, you’re missing a major part of the action.
first: yesterday the European Ct of Justice held hearings on #France’s push to globalize the right to be forgotten politico.eu/article/google…
read @daphnehk on the implications: nytimes.com/2018/09/10/opi…
2d: today the #EuropeanParliament rejected amendments to #CopyrightDirective proposal that would have carefully addressed interests of creators & their audiences. do not be shocked when #uploadfilters become the norm. not over yet acc to @Senficon
3rd: today, as part of @JunckerEU state of Union speech, the @EU_Commission released proposed new #Terrorism regulation.
still need to review carefully, but big questions around (among other things) definition of ‘terrorist content’ & the authority of non-judicial ‘competent authorities’ to order content takedowns.
might think that these regulatory moves further idea of democratic control of the public space managed by private companies. I’d say think again. in aggregate, these moves may lock in, not undermine, the role & power of the giant social media & search companies.
that’s been the trend for years: get companies to take on roles normally assumed, in democratic societies, by rule-of-law institutions like courts. me, last year: foreignaffairs.com/articles/europ…
regulation is definitely coming. it should be smart & focused on getting companies to disclose more abt their rules & implementation. moving into content reg shd raise concerns for everyone.
