Almost every country has laws around “intermediary liability.” More interesting than they sound, these laws are foundational to protecting free speech online. They apply to social media platforms, service providers and other services that enable people to upload and share content online. They establish the situations in which the intermediary platform becomes liable for its users’ content. Or, put more simply, it’s when the messenger becomes responsible for the message.
But the answer is not to force the hand of the messenger to remove content. Silencing the messenger silences the message, and can discourage millions of people worldwide from speaking out about the issues that matter to them most.
