【Facebook:与法国法院分享关于仇恨言论嫌疑人的数据】

Facebook正在向法国法院移交涉嫌在其社交网络上使用仇恨言论的人的识别信息。此前,该公司向法国法官提供了涉嫌恐怖主义和暴力行为有关人员的数据。据报道,该公司已同意扩大数据共享业务。与此同时,法国将制定一个框架,要求平台在24小时内从互联网上删除危险或非法内容,在提供言论自由和保护公民之间必须取得平衡。

Facebook is handing over identifying information to French courts on people suspected of using hate speech on its social network. "This is huge news, it means that the judicial process will be able to run normally," Cédric O, France's minister for the digital sector, told Reuters. "It's really very important, they're only doing it for France."
The company has previously provided French judges with data it has related to people suspected of terrorism and violent acts. Facebook's head of global affairs Nick Clegg and O met last week, and the company has reportedly agreed to expand its data sharing practices to hate speech suspects. Engadget has contacted Facebook for comment.
O said Facebook's decision came after talks between it and French officials, beginning with a meeting last year between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg France's president Emmanuel Macron, who's been open about his ambition to regulate hate speech and disinformation. Macron's party has a majority in France's parliament, which is considering legislation that would grant powers to fine tech companies up to 4 percent of their worldwide revenue if they aren't effective enough in curbing hate speech.
Until now, Facebook had declined to provide details on hate speech suspects as it wasn't obligated to do so, and it was reportedly concerned the data might be abused without an independent judiciary in place. Facebook said in November it would cooperate with a French investigation into its content moderation policies and systems, with a focus on how it addresses hate speech.
Meanwhile, O said in an interview that France will lay out a framework requiring platforms to remove dangerous or illegal content from the internet within 24 hours. A body will be set up to provide guidelines on what should be deemed hateful or insulting. He said there has to be a balance between affording freedom of expression and protecting citizens.
