Liability of online platforms
Online platforms are enjoying increasing popularity and making the Internet more interactive than ever before. At the same time, liability cases are increasing.
In order to be able to quickly remove illegal content in the growing volume of data, the solution is increasingly being sought in technical filters, for example in the latest EU copyright reform or in the deletion of offensive statements in the ECJ decision "Eva Glawischnig/Facebook".
This raises the question of the suitability of filters which evoke fears of censorship and restrictions on the diversity of supply.
