Germany had enacted a law against hate on the InternetUncategorized October 1, 2017
From 1 October in Germany had enacted a law that obliges Internet resources to handle more serious complaints, which concern hate speech and bullying on the Internet and delete or block potentially dangerous entries and comments within 24 hours of receipt of the complaint. About it reports Deutsche Welle.
It is also said that on the complaint in some cases, companies are given a week.
It is noted that the timing for review and deletion of records was the most controversy. Critics of the law argue that such time limit can lead to the fact that in controversial issues, the company will choose the delete option, rather than be subjected to sanctions for written online content.
The Ministry of justice, in turn, emphasizes that sanctions will be imposed for systematic breaches of the law. At the end of the allotted statutory period, users will be able to complain to the Federal office of justice, if, in their opinion, the complaint was not handled appropriately.
Publication Der Spiegel said that the checks will be subjected to such social networks as Facebook, TWITTER, Tumblr, Flickr and video service Vimeo.
