The American non-governmental organization Center for Democracy Technology (CDT) has against the "Executive Order on Preventing Online Censorship", with which US Prasident Donald Trump wants to scrutinize the room for maneuver of Twitter and other platforms, a lawsuit in front of the district court Columbia submitted. The Order Blasting against the first additional article for the US emergence, the freedom of speech guaranteed, argued the CDT on Tuesday.
Protection of freedom of expression and US premium election
"The freeling should stop social media services thereof, misinformation, the vacuum of electives and the corporation of violence on their platforms", said Alexandra Givens, Prasidentine and CEO of CDT. GIVENS sees access to reliable information as immutably for democracy. She raises Trump with the "Threat of retaliation" and art regulation, signing information brokers, make the fact checks. Thus, Trump was in one election year to accept that the risk of vacuum and disinformation are increasing. "The government can and should not force online mediators to moderate the speech after the whims of the prasident." Therefore, the CDT complaints have filed to protect the right to free community expenses guaranteed in the first article of the US emergence and the intimination of the US Prassidal election 2020 does not hazard, Givens says.
Decree against Twitter Co.
Trump signed the decree after Twitter had subjected a fact to a tweet of the US prasident to a fact check. Trump had claimed, letter selection increased the risk of elective qualifications, which was called incorrectly in the fact check.
The US prasident now wants the implementation of a "Section 230" Record well-known clause. According to this scheme from a 1996 Act, online services are not liable for users published by users. At the same time, she gives the platforms far-reaching freedom to counteract certain content or users. With its fraction, Trump commissioned Telekom Supervision FCC and the consumer protection worker FTC, rules for the implementation of "Section 230" work out.
The adoption thus increases the comprehensive legal protection of the online services – a cornerstone, the Facebook, Twitter and Youtube in their today’s form.
