- Delete hate speech or pay up, Germany tells social media firms
By Melissa Eddy and Mark Scott - Friday Jun 30, 2017
BERLIN — Social media companies operating in Germany face fines of as much as $57 million if they do not delete illegal, racist or slanderous comments and posts within 24 hours, under a law passed on Friday.The law reinforces Germany’s position as one of the most aggressive countries in the Western world at forcing companies like Facebook, Google and Twitter to crack down on hate speech and other extremist messaging.Digital and human rights groups, as well as the companies themselves, had opposed the law on the grounds that it placed limits on individuals’ right to free expression.Technology companies and free speech advocates argue that there is a fine line between policymakers’ views on hate speech and what is considered legitimate freedom of expression, and social networks say they do not want to be forced to censor those who use their services.Tech companies also deny that they are failing to meet countries’ demands to remove suspected hate speech online.Germany witnessed an increase in racist comments and anti-immigrant rhetoric after the arrival of more than 1 million migrants, predominantly from Muslim countries, since 2015, and Heiko Maas, the justice minister who drew up the draft legislation, said on Friday that it ensured that rules that currently apply offline would be equally enforceable online.In Germany, which has some of the most stringent antihate speech laws in the Western world, a study published this year found that Facebook and Twitter had failed to meet a national target of removing 70 percent of online hate speech within 24 hours of being alerted to its presence.Facebook said on Friday that the company shared the German government’s goal of fighting hate speech and had “been working hard” to resolve the issue of illegal content.The standoff between tech companies and politicians is most acute in Europe, where freedom of expression rights are less comprehensive than in the United States, and where policymakers have often bristled at Silicon Valley’s dominance of people’s digital lives.
