In October this 12 months, the federal government had notified regulations beneath which it’s going to arrange appellate panels to redress grievances that customers could have in opposition to the choices of social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook on internet hosting contentious content material.
The responsibilities of intermediaries previous had been restricted to notifying customers of regulations however now with the brand new regulations there might be a lot more particular responsibilities on platforms.
