The Network Enforcement Act and Its Siblings: On Willingness, Competence and Improvement

The Network Enforcement Act and Its Siblings: On Willingness, Competence and Improvement

The NetzDG has been in force since January, when French President Emmanuel Macron has announced a similar law at the same time. Is one of the two laws a really good solution? Stephan Dreyer and Amélie Heldt explain in this episode what it is all about.

The Network Enforcement Act (NetzDG) seeks to ban Hate-Speech from social networks quickly, while the French bill is to be used primarily against fake news in the election campaign. However, both texts do not really create a new legal situation, but are intended to improve the implementation of existing legislation in social networks. What are the practical benefits of the laws for law enforcement, users and social network operators?

The legal scholar Amélie Heldt has written a blog article about the French proposal for juwiss.de and explains in the BredowCast #32 together with Stephan Dreyer what the announcement in France can mean, what possibilities the laws offer or do not offer and what a really good network enforcement law could look like. On our own behalf: our host Daniela Friedrich leaves the Hans-Bredow-Institut after more than four years and the BredowCast pauses until a successor is found. We are looking for an editor in Public Relations/Social Media on a part-time basis (50% / pay grade 12 TV-L) from 15 May 2018 onwards, and we are looking forward to interesting applications.
