CMU presents: Platform Responsibility & Cancel Culture

Vvv22 cmupresents 1 220621

To what extent should social media, streaming and user-upload services be responsible for monitoring and addressing offensive, unlawful, abusive and misleading content uploaded to their platforms? And how can we ensure measures to deal with harmful content online don't impact on each creator's freedom of expression?
We look at how digital platforms and law-makers are dealing with this challenge, and consider what role the music industry plays in ensuring artists aren't victims of online abuse or on the receiving end of calls to be 'cancelled'.
