Top German court strikes down Facebook rules on hate speech
#1
A top German court has ruled that Facebook acted illegally in taking down racist posts and blocking the account of their author because the social network failed to inform the user or give a reason for shutting them down.

In its three-page summary, the Karlsruhe-based court stated that Facebook’s terms of service regarding the deletion of posts and blocking accounts for violating its community standards were “null and void”.

This, it added, is because Facebook does not undertake to inform the user about the removal of an offensive post at least retrospectively, to advise that it is blocking an account, to give a reason for doing so, or to offer the right of appeal.

The main post in question, which was reproduced in the court ruling, alleges that “Islamist immigrants” are free to murder with impunity in Germany.

Quote:“Migrants can murder and rape here and nobody cares! It’s about time the Office for the Protection of the Constitution sorted this out,” the post adds, referring to Germany’s main domestic security agency.
