Australian coalition eyes co-regulatory content kill-switch on social networks

Coalition eyes content kill-switch on social networks - iTnews.com.au: "The federal opposition is canvassing a co-regulatory proposal to force social media networks to remove content deemed "likely to cause harm to an Australian child".
The coalition today released a discussion paper on issues of child safety on the internet, brought about by consultations through its Online Safety Working Group formed earlier this year. One of its key suggestions is to set up a "Children's e-Safety Commissioner" or similar body to coordinate "a national response to online safety". Among other responsibilities, the commissioner could be responsible for administering a "co-operative regulatory scheme that applies to large online social media outlets operating in Australia"." 'via Blog this'
