2018 Report Censorship Edition By Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)
public pressure and scrutiny around content moderation have paid off
EFF has published their 2018 Report, assessing companies’ policies against five all-new criteria:
• Transparency in reporting government takedown requests based on both legal requests and requests alleging platform policy violations
• Providing meaningful notice to users of every content takedown and account suspension
• Providing users with an appeals process to dispute takedowns and suspensions
• Limiting the geographic scope of takedowns when possible
