Daily Stormer and The Internet Provider's Role in Mitigating Hate Speech

Who decides what is free speech and what is hate speech? Right now, determining where that line is falls to Internet companies. But is this the right decision? In this panel, we'll discuss how Internet providers can negotiate the thorny issues associated with being ‘stuck in the middle’. This session will use difficult scenarios to set the stage for discussion, and show how Internet companies can plan ahead by setting clear and open criteria around acceptable usage. In both the U.S. and EU, we will show how only transparency and openness can save these companies from many bad possible outcomes.
