"What is really näthat?"
"It can be anything from a malicious comment that is not illegal, grossly unlawful threat, a crime that can render the perpetrator to four years behind bars."
"the concept is so wide is problematic, says professor of constitutional law Hans-Gunnar Axberger. On behalf of the Institute for Law and the Internet, he has authored the recent report ”Nätkränkningar as a legal and democratic issues” (No. 1 in the Institute's series)."
"Axberger provides a background, exemplifies and presents systematically the current disparate legislation in the area of: assault, violation of civic freedom, defamation, hate speech, sedition, and unlawful integritetstrång, molestation, etc, He points to how the technology ran afoul of the legislature – who have for too long been based on the traditional printed word, and then patched and repaired after the ability."
"In the reasoning of defamation, a crime which does not in practice lead to criminal prosecution, he notes that the MeToo included a great deal that is angripligt as defamation and to ”Get the seem in this context to be clear as to the vidaresprider – ’parts’ – details of the battle itself responsible for their content."
"Axberger criticizes the shortcomings of the police, as on an assembly line putting down the investigations on the notified nätkränkningar. Prosecutors should also take up more of the less serious cases, not just those who can afford to hire a private attorney to bring an action against those who harass via email and social media."
"at the same time, Axberger the need for a more comprehensive and orderly lagstiftningsgrepp. Order, quite simply."
"But should not the internet be free?"
"The romantic view is cut effectively in the chapter on the internet that regleringsobjekt."
"on the Basis of the example China writing Axberger: ”In totalitarian or less democratic states of hands are the internet and other digital technologies is as dangerous as it can be positive in the libertarian states of america”. And based on Facebook's Cambridge Analytica-scandal, he notes: ”in Either controlling the state itself, or someone else will”."
"One of the conclusions in the report is that there is a need for better documentation. How common is nätkränkningarna? What accounts for them? And, to really know, are people today more quick to take offence?"
"Axberger also mean that serious attacks via the network should be separated from those that can be addressed in other ways. And that the racist and similar taunts should be punished regularly. Finally, the author writes that it should be made clear who bears responsibility for what online and how that responsibility should be allocated."
"But, ”Before further criminalisation is considered, one should examine whether the current rules are used in to the extent desired”."
"Nätkränkningarna is today a growing form of asymmetric warfare, according to several credible studies a actually threat to representative government."
"the Book of 99 pages should be compulsory reading for politicians, police officers, public prosecutors and any others who might be interested in democracy. "
