rooftop.talk #15: Hate on the Internet – the case of Sigi Maurer
September 16 @ 17:30 - 19:00| Free
Hate on the Internet is almost as old as the Internet itself. Anyone can become the target of insults, incitements and threats on social media. The Austrian government recently introduced a new legislative framework against hate on the Internet.
This alone would be enough to be the subject of our rooftop.talk on Wednesday, 16 September 2020, at 5:30 p.m. However, because the trial of “Bierwirt vs. Sigrid Maurer” resumed last week, we will also focus on this topical and interesting case.
Speakers will be:
- Sigrid Maurer, BA, member of the National Council, club chairwoman die Grünen (the Greens)
- Eva Hammertinger, media attorney
- Arthur Stadler, lawyer and founding partner of STADLER VÖLKEL
The live stream will begin at 5:30 p.m on Facebook. We look forward to a lively discussion!
