The Australian government passed the Criminal Code Amendment (sharing of abhorrent violent material) Bill which makes a crime for social media platforms not to promptly remove abhorrent violent material shared by their users. The legislation seems to be a response to the March attacks in Christchurch in which a white supremacist used a helmet-mounted camera to stream live on Facebook as he killed people in two mosques. The law defines abhorrent violent material as acts of terrorism, murder, attempted murder, torture, rape, and kidnapping. The crime would be punishable for people working for online companies by three years in prison and a fine of 10.5 Australian dollars or 10% of the platform’s annual turnover. The legislation creates a liability regime that is stricter than the notice-and-takedown regimes in the US and Europe.
