IGF 2018 WS #269 Do(not) touch: selfregulatory safe harbor of social platforms

IGF 2018 WS #269 Do(not) touch: selfregulatory safe harbor of social platforms
Additional Speakers: 

Speaker 5: Natalia Filina, Private Sector, Eastern European Group

Agenda: 

Timing:

  • Setup of the topic by moderator & introduction of speakers, online moderator and rapporteur, including their background/experience - 5 min
  • Short statements by each speaker reflecting the theme of the session from different perspectives - 15 min (3 min per person)
  • Discussion phase where moderator is addressing one/two key questions to each speaker - 20 min (4 min per person)
  • Questions from onsite and online participants are welcomed throughout the whole discussion - 15 min
  • Brief conclusion and thank you note - 5 min

Thematic focus:

  • Techno-utopia: neutral nature of technological tools v. their targeted (for better or worse) use. Current paradigm - the more information we have, the more ignorant we become. Data is not the new oil due to its infiniteness.
  • Controlling technology or controlled by it: domain name v. FB profile. How to regain control from technology over us? Generation of prosumer communities.
  • Social platforms as a profitable business: can money be balanced with morals when it comes to self-regulation?
  • Impact at the society level: awareness and education for the connected and non-connected communities. Digital culture. Everyone should learn to use technologies. Create own technologies. Protect developed technologies. Generate awareness about the use of data and its importance. Is it fair to receive income for the use of your data?
  • Impact at the state level: nations overtaken by technological companies in charge of data. Does it make nations dependent on businesses? Does this impact democracy? Does the abuse of social platforms by states ensures tolerating self-regulation?
  • What can a country do to recover its technological sovereignty? With examples such as Estonia, could a true digital government and democracy exist in the future?
  • Industry landscape and regulatory environment for platforms in China and the USA: national intermediary liability laws.
  • Shortlist of possible regulators: heavyweight v. super heavyweight. Mutually exclusive or complementary?
