THE FRENCH BILL ON HATEFUL CONTENT ONLINE

Dan Shefet*

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Content regulation in Europe is on the rise and especially content pertaining to hate speech. The first legislation directly addressing content on social media is the German Network Enforcement Act which entered into effect on January 1, 2018.

The law which was originally dubbed "The Facebook Law" has since inspired other countries and the latest example is the French hate speech bill which introduces even stricter regulation and furthermore aims at a revision of the general accountability directive in the European Union (e-Commerce Directive).
