Charts on Illegal Content
Incitement to terrorism, illegal hate speech, child sexual abuse material, infringement of intellectual property rights and of consumer protection online are defined as illegal content. In 2017, the European Commission proposed a European Union-wide approach on illegal content issuing a Communication on tackling illegal content online. This communication was translated into a non-binding Recommendation on measures to effectively tackle illegal content online. The recommendation proposes a mechanism for online platforms on how to act proactively in removal, prevention and the reappearance of the illegal content. The mechanism encourages online platforms to set out transparent rules on notifications from “trusted flaggers” and to inform the users about their content being deleted as illegal content. Moreover, it sets safeguards namely human oversight and verification of the content, to make sure that there is no damage to freedom of expression online.
