BERLIN (AP) — A senior German official reportedly wants authorities to prosecute anti-Semitic hate speech posted online, even if the material is hosted abroad.
Bavaria’s justice minister told weekly Welt am Sonntag that he plans to propose a change in the law when he meets with counterparts from Germany’s other 15 states next month.
Also from WiscoDave:
Sounds “interesting” but there is this part:
… punishing those who spread anti-Semitism and other forms of hate speech online.”
Wonder how that ties into the mention the other day from UK about policing online “hate” speech?
Not a big fan of seemingly random coincidences.
