USA vs Soziale Netzwerke

Justice Department reveals proposals to curb platforms‚ protections – The Justice Department is urging Congress to limit the legal protections enjoyed by online platforms, seeking to narrow the law so they shoulder more responsibility for what appears on their websites. … The DOJ’s move is the latest in escalating attacks by lawmakers and the Trump administration on the law that gives websites protection from liability over content their users post. … Losing legal protections if websites purposefully facilitate or solicit third-party content that violates federal law, so that people affected by such a violation could sue the platform. – imit immunity for content moderation decisions to those done in ‚good faith,‘ meaning liability protection would only apply to moderation that fits with the platform’s terms of service and with a reasonable explanation. … Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act in part gives platforms the ability to remove content they believe is ‚obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing or otherwise objectionable.'“

Zoom will E2E auch kostenfrei

„Amid pressure, Zoom will end-to-end encrypt all calls, free or paid – Bowing to critics, Zoom will offer E2EE if non-paying customers register an account. – Previously, Zoom said it would provide end-to-end encryption to paying customers and a less-robust form of encryption, known as transit encryption, to non-paying customers. Zoom said the two-tier offering would allow law enforcement to regulate illicit content coming from users who don’t have accounts and, hence, are harder to track. Paying users, by contrast, had more traceability and, hence, were less likely to use the platform for illegal purposes.“
