Terrorist Content Regulation: Article 13 on Steroids – A Conversation with Daphne Keller at State of the Net 2019

Did you know that a little over a week ago the European Union decided to move forward with their latest proposed updates to the EU Copyright Directive, which includes requirements for websites to affirmatively scan for copyrighted content – it’s been just about universally lambasted as internet-destroyingly awful – but all signs indicate that the EU is barreling ahead with it. Well, we’re not going to talk about *that* today, but something else that’s just around the corner in the EU, and is *EVEN WORSE*. It’s generically called “terrorist content regulation” and it’s Article 13 on steroids, at least according to our guest today. My name is Emory Roane, and you’re listening to Tech Policy Grind, a podcast from the Internet Law and Policy Foundry. This is another conversation recorded at State of the Net 2019 – this time with the Director of Intermediary Liability at The Center for Internet and Society at Stanford, Daphne Keller. @daphnehk

I had a great time talking with Daphne, and I think you’ll enjoy this dive into some of the biggest NON-PRIVACY issues facing the internet (I swear there’s no privacy talk in this episode at all (or hardly at all))- from the already mentioned terrorist content regulation to the question of whether or not Twitter is – or should be – considered the modern day public square, and what that means for free speech and censorship.

I’m going to get right into it, but don’t forget to follow us on twitter at @techpolicygrind, as well as the Internet Law and Policy Foundry at @ilpfoundry – we’ll be releasing information soon about applying for the next class of fellows – so all you early career professionals listening, and especially any students out there – stay tuned. Now, I hope you enjoy this conversation with Daphne Keller at State of the Net, 2019.
