With the proliferation of the Internet, and social media in particular, has come previously unimaginable levels of free expression. At the same time, there are increasing concerns that largely unfettered freedom is creating harm for individuals and a society forced to contend with disinformation and unrestrained hate speech. Is there a way to protect free expression online while confronting these harms? A new MLI paper, authored by a former CRTC chair and a former vice-chair, proposes a framework to balance these concerns.
We are pleased that both authors, Konrad von Finckenstein and Peter Menzies, joined us for this webinar to further discuss their approach.
