Bullying, harassment, violent content, hate, porn and other problematic content circulates on digital platforms. Who should be responsible for stoping the spread of this content and how?
Real world example 1:
IsAnyoneUp? A revenge porn site started in 2010. The creator denied responsibility for the harm caused by the site by stating that he acted only as a service provider, and didn’t retrieve the content himself.
Real world example 2:
Interactions between rapper Kanye West and comedian Pete Davidson, in which Kanye started a hate campaign online and harassed and bullied Pete across social media platforms for dating his ex-wife Kim Kardashian. For example, making serious accusations against Pete by accusing him of pedophilia.
