    EU pushes forward on law against hate speech, illegal content. Hosting companies required to take websites offline

    People create definitions of what hate speech and illegal content is. Whether it be by political correctness, society, laws, etc. If we fail to understand those consequences, I fear we have entered a very dark age. That's the intent and goal today - which is quite admirable. However, it will...

    If memory serves me correct, ARPANET, while a military project sponsored by ARPA (eventually became DARPA), was developed "to communicate with and share computer resources among mainly scientific users at the connected institutions." - including Universities and Military.

    EU pushes forward on law against hate speech, illegal content. Hosting companies required to take websites offline

    A dictatorship or a government can define speech as whatever it deems it as - including classifying any speech as bad speech or as hate speech.

    EU pushes forward on law against hate speech, illegal content. Hosting companies required to take websites offline

    We are betraying the principles upon which the internet was founded. It's an attack upon its very soul. I iterate again... one's definition of hate speech could be one person's faith. Or one individual's position on government policy. Or another individuals moral principles. These "policies"...

    Websites to be fined millions by UK online watchdog over 'online harms' under new proposals

    This is a huge concern and an even larger problem with huge chilling effects no matter which corner of the globe one inhibits. There are far too many shades of gray in how one interprets information. Factor in human interpretation, politics and cross-border issues, one country's facts is...

    The Future of Forum Software

    Forums will not go away because there's something nice about having a pseudonym. Social media sometimes runs a bit too close to home, especially where one is only two mouse clicks away from your personal or work life.

    Honestly, the lawyers are still debating this. There are camps on that says it's based on where the person is at the time to based on the intent in the recitals it is based on a EU citizenship. Plus there's debate too on what determines how a processor knows such behavior is done within outside...

    If you thought GDPR is a joke, joke's on you

    Respectfully, I do not agree. Per Article 3 - Territorial Scope. The language there targets both businesses established within the EU and outside of the EU. In respects to citizens, the language refers to "in the union". However, if we look at the Recitals 2 and 14, we see the following...
