California Prevails on Net Neutrality Rules
January 28, 2022, 10:58 PM
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has rejected a legal challenge that attempted to bar enforcement of California's gold standard state net neutrality law. Major ISPs had insisted that the Federal Communications Commission could define and enforce net neutrality protections, so when the FCC decided to eviscerate those protections, the rest of the nation simply had to live with the consequences. The Ninth Circuit held otherwise, finding that once an agency has abdicated its authority to regulate,...
New Tracking Global Online Censorship Site Explains Content Moderation Practices and Impacts
January 28, 2022, 12:14 AM
Content moderation has become a critical topic across the globe. Unfortunately, it can still be difficult for the average person to understand the processes that go into content moderation, much less how to appeal decisions that those platforms make to censor content or accounts. To help fill this gap, we’re launching a resource for the research and advocacy communities—as well as the public at large—to learn more about the policies and practices of commercial content moderation and the ph...

The U.K. Paid $724,000 For A Creepy Campaign To Convince People That Encryption is Bad. It Won’t Work.
January 22, 2022, 12:08 AM
This week, the U.K. government launched an unprecedented and deceptive effort to kill off end-to-end encryption. They’ve hired a fancy ad agency to convince people that encrypted messages are dangerous to children.
The explicit goal of the “No Place to Hide” campaign, launched on Tuesday, is to prevent Facebook from expanding its use of end-to-end encryption. Currently, Facebook’s WhatsApp messaging system uses end-to-end encryption, but other communications systems, including Facebook M...

Since 2020, Zoom, Facebook, YouTube, and Eventbrite have all censored academic events hosted by colleges an...
DSA: EU Parliament Vote Ensures a Free Internet, But a Final Regulation Must Add Stronger Privacy Protections
January 20, 2022, 2:09 PM
The European Parliament had an important decision to make this week about the Digital Services Act (DSA). After months of considering amendments, members oscillated between several policy options on how to regulate online platforms, including the dystopian idea of mandating dominant platforms act as internet police, monitoring content on behalf of governments and collecting user information to keep the internet "safe."
