Tech regulation: speech impediment - Today News Post Today News || UK News

UK and EU tech regulators have barrelled into the fight between free speech and online protection with a crude plan to make Big Tech clean up content. The UK is taking aim at everything from social media networks to dating sites while the EU focuses on very large platforms. Both plans are so broad it is hard to see what they will achieve.

Reducing illegal and harmful content online is laudable. Tougher moderation is necessary and feasibleto people 70 and older. None of thisOntario reporting 3,813 new COVID-19 cases, however, is new.

Prodded by advertisers and regulators, Facebook has been spending more on moderation since the 2016 US election. In third-quarter earnings it reported that its headcount had increased by nearly a third on the previous year. Expenses rose 28 per cent, outpacing the increase in sales. The company’s operating margin has fallen from 44 per cent in late 2018 to 37 per cents plant in Kalamazoo, Mich., afte. Expect it to lose another few percentage points in 2021.?

The threat of onerous new fines could speed up the process. If content is not policed properly, UK regulator Ofcom proposes fining companies £18m or 10 per cent of global turnover. The EU envisages penalties of up to 6 per cent.
