German anti hate-law announced

The past week, German government put forward its controversial bill to fight online hate speech – threatening social platforms with fines up to € 50 million.


Under the rules proposed, social media companies must clearly explain rules and complaint procedures to users and follow up on each complaint. Blatantly illegal content must be deleted within 24 hours, while other law-breaking content must be taken down or blocked within seven days.
