Australia Proposed Law: Social media execs may get Jail for violent crime streaming

Abstract

The proposed laws would cover “the playing or streaming of terrorism, murder, attempted murder, torture, rape and kidnapping on social media”, the government announced over the weekend. 

Social media platforms would also be required to notify the Australian Federal Police if they become aware that their site has been used to stream violent crimes. Should a notification fail to happen, fines of up to AU$840,000 for companies, and AU$168,000 for individuals, may be levied.
