Techdirt Podcast Episode 195: The EU Endangers Free Speech Online… Again

from the more-of-the-same dept

The latest in the EU’s string of internet regulatory efforts has a new target: terrorist propaganda. Just as with past regulations, the proposed rules seem onerous and insane, creating huge liability for internet platforms that fail to do the impossible. This week, we’re joined by returning guests Daphne Keller from Stanford’s Center For Internet And Society and Emma Llansó from the Center for Democracy and Technology to discuss this most recent danger to online free speech in the EU.

Re: Re:

You’re assuming that the government doesn’t want a highly invasive, selectively applied privacy enforcement law of its own.

The government is also heavily lobbied by copyright-based interest groups who salivate at the idea of Article 13 after SOPA was shuttered in 2012.

Unfortunately, I don’t really see sanity prevailing in this case.
