Design Principles for Intermediary Liability Laws

The Transatlantic High Level Working Group on Content Moderation Online and Freedom of Expression is a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania in partnership with The Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands and the Institute for Information Law of the University of Amsterdam. This is a discussion paper from that working group.

The goal of the Transatlantic High Level Working Group on Content Moderation Online and Freedom of Expression (TWG) is “to identify and encourage adoption of scalable solutions to reduce hate speech, violent extremism and viral deception online, while protecting freedom of expression and a vibrant, global internet.” This goal raises two central questions:

  • what are optimal policies with respect to hate speech, violent extremism and viral deception in the private sector?
  • what is the optimal legal framework to promote such policies in the private sector, while protecting freedom of expression online?
