Should Mark Zuckerburg go to jail for criminal content?

Post by Firefox » Wed Feb 12, 2020 11:13 am

Some authorities in the UK want to make bosses of social media websites (like Mark Zuckerburg of Facebook) responsible for the sick and criminal content that gets freely published on their websites. Do you believe that Zuckerburg should be responsible in law for sick content that shows people killing themselves (or others) or that encourages visitors to commit suicide (kill themselves)? Can he just continue to say "Facebook does not allow such content"?

From The Sun newspaper...

TECH CRACKDOWN
NSPCC boss says tech giants should be held criminally responsible for sick online content


(NSPCC in UK = National Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Children)

A CHARITY boss wants tech giants to be held criminally responsible for sick online content.

NSPCC chief Peter Wanless fears that PM Boris Johnson’s crackdown does not go far enough.

Under the Ofcom code, tech giants will have to show they are doing everything possible to quickly take down terrorist and child sexual abuse images.

No10 is also considering plans to kick people who upload vile content online off the internet by blocking their computer’s ISP.

The call for stricter internet regulation follows the suicide of Molly Russell, 14. She died in 2017 after viewing self-harm images on Instagram.
