EU Imposes Censorship on Zuckerberg’s Meta and Musk’s X
EU commissioner has sent letters to Zuckerberg and Musk demanding that they comply with EU censorship.
The EU now decides what speech is permissible.
Both Breton letters contained passages complaining of platform failure to remove “illegal content,” a concept that is surely coming to the U.S. soon, if we don’t put up a fight. From the letter to Zuckerberg:
I would ask that you be very vigilant to ensure strict compliance with DSA rules on terms of service, on the requirement of timely, diligent, and objective action following notices of illegal content in the EU, and on the need for proportionate and effective mitigation measures.
The equivalent line in the Musk letter:
When you receive notices of illegal content in the EU, you must be timely, diligent, and effective in taking action and removing the relevant content when warranted. We have, from qualified services, reports of potentially illegal content circulating on your service.
