Germany Cracks Whip Against Hate Speech on Social Media

31. January 2018.

Germany on Monday began enforcing its new Network Enforcement Act, or NetzDG, which imposes a fine of up to $60 million on social media networks that fail to remove hate-inciting posts promptly.
The controversial law, adopted in mid 2017, just entered its formal enforcement phase. It is designed to help combat hate and fake news at a time when ISIS-linked terror and anti-immigrant extremism have been on the rise in Germany. Further, Russian hackers have been accused of trying to sow nationalist tendencies through social media attacks.
