A government regulator shouldn’t control your speech, online or off. Yet the new Online Safety Bill [nothing save about it] could lead to just that, or worse.
The bloated Bill contains so many risks to free speech that it’s hard to know where to start.
For starters, the appointment of a 'State Speech Regulator' - appointed and directed by government - will create a sprawling bureaucracy of speech police. The Home Office and the DCMS will direct what speech must be removed, filtered and monitored.
For another thing, the Bill’s provisions to block ...
And perhaps the most shocking power, the Bill could force private messaging apps to monitor all user communications, including your private conversations with family and friends, on the assumption that we are all engaging in criminal conduct.
Feel safer yet?

Brussels, 06/07/2021 – Today, the European Parliament approved the ePrivacy Derogation, allowing providers of e-mail and messaging services to automatically search all personal messages of each citizen for presumed suspect content and report suspected cases to the police.
How does this affect you?
All of your chat conversations and emails will be automatically searched for suspicious content. Nothing remains confidential or secret. There is no requirement of a court order or an initial suspicion for searching your messages. It occurs always and automatically.
If an algorithms classifies the content of a message as suspicious, your private or intimate photos may be viewed by staff and contractors of international corporations and police authorities. Also your private nude photos may be looked at by people not known to you, in whose hands your photos are not safe.
Machine-generated reports on your communications may have been passed on to other countries, such as the USA, where there is no data privacy – with incalculable results.
This law is meant to be temporary, it will be in place until 31 Desember 2025. But "temporary" in the world of politics does often not mean the same as elsewhere. Temporary means it will be there until the revised EU's ePrivacy directive enters into force.
It says this law that it *allows* corporations who provides email, messaging, chat services to search its private as well as public user content for criminal content, but I do not read that this law *forces* those corporations to comply. Who takes the cost of such operation? Who writes the algorithm? I assume its expected that all (large) corporations complies and may be given the needed tools to perform, but how does this play out on private networks such as fediverse/federation?
It appear to me that private corporations have been handed the ability to do police work on behalf of the police if they want, this makes it hard to identify and hold to account wrongdoing by or on behalf of the police. What happens to legal protection against unwarranted search of private correspondence and thought?

L’objectif du texte : faire définitivement entrer dans le droit commun les mesures de l’état d’urgence débuté en 2015 (assignation à résidence, perquisitions administratives…) ainsi que les mesures expérimentales de la loi renseignement de 2015 (surveillance automatisée du réseau par des « algorithmes »)
- Perquisitions administratives de matériel informatique
- Services sociaux comme auxiliaires de renseignement
- Surveillance des communications satellitaires
- Des drones contre la population
- Surveillance algorithmique de masse
