No Country Should be Making Speech Rules for the World

“It’s a simple proposition: no single country should be able to restrict speech across the entire internet. Any other approach invites a swift relay race to the bottom for online expression, giving governments and courts in countries with the weakest speech protections carte blanche to edit the internet. Unfortunately, governments, including democracies that care about the rule of law, too often lose sight of this simple proposition. That’s why EFF, represented by Johnson Winter Slattery, has moved to intervene in support of X’[s], formerly known as Twitter’s legal challenge to a global takedown order from Australia’s eSafety Commissioner.” (05/09/24)
