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 package against hate on the Internet.
The topic of our rooftop.talk on Wednesday, 16 September 2020, was not only this legislative package, but also the trial “Bierwirt vs. Sigrid Maurer”. Speakers:
- Sigrid Maurer, BA, member of the National Council, club chairwoman “die Grünen” (the Greens)
- Mag. Dr. Eva Hammertinger, media attorney
- Dr. Arthur Stadler, lawyer and founding partner of STADLER VÖLKEL
The highlights of this rooftop.talk (duration approx. 7 minutes) can be found here.
Many thanks to the newspaper DER STANDARD, moderator Lisa Stadler, our video team Domotion.at and to our colleague Eva Hammertinger Legal & Strategy Consulting.
