Your fundamental rights apply online every bit as much as they do offline. We are working hard to make sure hard-won fundamental rights are a reality in the digital age.
Online Content Moderation
Public Consultation by Dept of Communications
We recently submitted a report on online content moderation to the Department of Communications on 15 April 2019. In it we assert that fundamental rights, including to privacy and to free expression, apply as much online as they do off. We identify some difficulties and present recommendations for their resolution.
