A strong, independent, statutory regulator for online platforms


An independent regulator, needs powers to define online platforms within the law, identify areas of concern, compel them to provide information and oversee the actions they take. A regulator must have sharp teeth, starting with strong information gathering powers, the power to initiate enquiries, and the ability to impose effective sanctions including the ability to fine for non-compliance.


Purely voluntary approaches have failed. The issues are too big and far too serious. We as a society must find effective ways to stem the flow of hate, abuse, and offensive, illegitimate, and even dangerous content online.
