The Union des étudiants juifs de France (UEJF) [Union of Jewish Students of France] and SOS Racisme are going to apply for summary judgement against Twitter, YouTube and Facebook for non-respect of their statutory moderation obligations imposed on internet hosting companies to delete clearly illegal content without a reasonable period of time.
Activists from the UEJF, SOS Racisme and SOS homophobie carried out, "from 31 March to 10 May 2016, the first mass testing of the social networks, reporting 586 items of content that were racist, antisemitic, that denied the Holocaust, homophobic, constituting an apology for terrorism or crimes against humanity", the three associations say in a statement that was published on Sunday.
"Of the 586 items of hateful content reported, only 4% were deleted on Twitter, 7% on YouTube and 34% on Facebook," they specify.
The UEJF and SOS Racisme "will apply for summary judgement in the French legal system against Twitter, YouTube and Facebook, to understand the reasons for non-compliance with their legal obligations under article 6 of the law for confidence in the digital economy dated 21 June 2004, which requires hosting companies to delete clearly illegal content within a reasonable period of time, and to report it to the prosecutor's office," say the two associations.
"The mystery that surrounds the operation of moderation teams on social networks prevents any serious progress being made in reducing racist and antisemitic messages," deplores Sacha Reingewirtz, president of the UEJF.Source
Is it me or does Sacha Reingewirtz not bear a striking resemblance to the figure in the Jewbwahaha graphic?
