The Centre for IT & IP Law at KU Leuven have recently published blog posts on online hate speech and content policing. Here you can find out more and get a direct link to the respective articles.
On 20 July Aleksandra Kuczerawy published a blog post entitled “The Code of Conduct on Online Hate Speech: an example of state interference by proxy?” It portrays the European Commission’s Code of Conduct on Countering Illegal Hate Speech Online and investigates its context as well as what this has led to so far.
Aleksandra’s colleague at the Centre for IT & IP Law at KU Leuven, Pieter-Jan Ombelet, in turn, wrote about “The Chilling Effects of Content Policing by Social Media”. It deals with the question of responsibilty and how to deal with harrowing, offensive and illegal content.
