Online Safety Bill

I couldn't find an existing thread about this, but with the online safety bill in the news thought it could do with one

https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...bench-pressure
Quote:
Donelan confirms stiffer online safety measures after backbench pressure

One new provision targets senior managers at tech platforms who ignore Ofcom enforcement notices
In addition to the amendment for the changes to add criminal charges for tech platform managers, this has also been added which seems to be contrdictory for a goverment that's supposedly against 'cancel culture' and for free speech
Quote:
Under a further change to the bill, video footage that shows people crossing the Channel in small boats in a “positive light” will be added to a list of illegal content that all tech platforms must proactively prevent from reaching users.

Donelan said posting positive videos of crossings could be aiding and abetting immigration offences. Natalie Elphicke, the Conservative MP for Dover, had originally tabled an amendment proposing the change.

Re: Online Safety Bill

Nope, its equally vague, referring to 'tech companies' and 'major platforms'.

[ and Category 1 companies ] whatever they are.

This bill still treats the internet as if it's the top shelf of the corner shop. The only parties likely to fall foul of it are the BBC and innocent UK forums etc. Tik Tok, twitter et al will still be unreachable.

I did read this in the draft link ;

The regulator will have the powers necessary to take appropriate action against all companies in scope, no matter where they are based.
Good luck with that .... delusions of power.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Ships_of_Dunkirk

Quote:
The Little Ships of Dunkirk were about 850 private boats[1] that sailed from Ramsgate in England to Dunkirk in northern France between 26 May and 4 June 1940 as part of Operation Dynamo, helping to rescue more than 336,000 British, French, and other Allied soldiers who were trapped on the beaches at Dunkirk during the Second World War.

Re: Online Safety Bill

Some companies like What'sApp will withdraw from the UK because they will not weaken their security just for the UK. It's a terrible bill.
