After the Reform of the copyright law, the European Union is now planning for the next incursion into the Internet. It comes to terrorist Propaganda, which is faster than in the past is deleted.
Julian King has no more patience.
The EU Commissioner for the security of the Union has been waiting seven months on the European Parliament to deal with his law proposal to Delete of terrorist content on the Internet. It will go to three key points, explained King.
"first, the delete command. Platforms should respond within an hour, if you received a Deletion request from a judicial or police authorities. Secondly, Whose platform for terrorist content is used, the need to actively fight against it. And, thirdly, the member States should maintain the capacity to law enforcement, to provide these deletion commands."
Julian King and his colleague, home Affairs, Dimitris Avramopoulos, referring to the example of racist attacks in mid-March in Christchurch, new Zealand: 50 people killed the attackers there and filmed, broadcast live on Facebook. From there, the Video was a million times spread, even to other platforms such as YouTube.
Julian King, the EU Commissioner for the security of the Union, wants a quick solution.for example, Christchurch
by the hand Of man let the Video didn't catch. Instead, both platforms switched automatic filter systems – and here is the Problem for Birgit Sippel begins. The social Democrat from North Rhine-Westphalia sits in the competent Parliament Committee on civil liberties, justice and home Affairs. She does not trust the technical measures and demands: a private company, not the police, but courts would need to be able to decide what needs to from the mains and what is not.
"We have big problems, if it is not left to the police, because she knows the legal situation in doubt. And there is also content that might be ugly, but not illegal. Therefore, we argue that there must be a judicial authority makes this decision."
Even if would be clarified, who is granted in case of doubt, the deletion command, the member of Parliament, would remain the Problem of cross-border jurisdiction. So, the question is whether a German judge can compel a Swedish company to Delete.
"Even if it is not these countries may be illegal. We also have a Problem with a single set of definitions. And we want to reverse that Sweden, Hungary, Poland may not say to a German Server, what do we have to delete? Because the understanding of what terrorism is, is what is illegal, is different in the member States."
