Roles And Responsibilities Of Information Intermediaries

by Wolfgang Schulzvia Aegis Paper Series
Thursday, November 14, 2019

Regulatory attempts such as the German Network Enforcement Act (NetzDG) can serve as an example. The paper analyzes those approaches from a human-rights perspective and argues that the platforms’ ability to assess the context of content plays a major role in determining whether “new school regulation” sets proportional limits to freedom of speech.
