In response to election meddling, Facebook data breaches, other social media issues and unsatisfactory response from Zuck, the U.S. Senate intelligence committee hawk Mark Warner (D) has circulated this policy paper threatening new regulation. I have attached the whitepaper. A lot of thought has gone into this and it's clear that the US intends to introduce a wide array of bills that will have significant impact on online communities. Some highlights: Duty to label bots Duty to label origin of posts & accounts Duty to identify fake accounts Make platforms liable for defamation, false light, public disclosure of private facts, failure to take down fake audio/video content. Public Interest Data Access Bill Task Force for countering threats to democratic institutions. Privacy & Data protection & GDPR like legislation. Fines possibly similar to the GDPR (millions) Major social media companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, Spotify seem to have responded by banning InfoWars from their services.
