The landmark Online Safety Bill has been re-introduced to Parliament, with stronger protections for children and vulnerable groups and without the controversial provisions relating to "legal but harmful content." The Government's stated aim is for it to be passed by the end of this Parliamentary session.
Join Mishcon de Reya and Taylor Vinters and a panel of experts to discuss the Government's new draft.
We will examine, in particular:
- The changes in the new draft of the Bill, and their impact
- What the Bill means for the 25,000 businesses currently in scope
- How the Bill aims to target systems rather than content and whether that is the right approach
- Whether the Bill strikes the right balance between protecting internet users and freedom of speech
- Next steps for the Bill, including potential amendments in the Lords
