Submission:
Content moderation
Comments:
Laws passed recently in Europe (such as https://law.yale.edu/mfia/case-disclosed/germanys-netzdg-and-threat-online-free-speech) require more aggressive enforcement of moderation policies on social media and other internet platforms. To what extent can platforms preempt this type of regulation with better enforcement? What are the dangers to freedom of expression? In what ways does objectionable content and overmoderation affect historically disadvantaged groups?
