Internet Harm Reduction Proposal
Author: Professor Lorna Woods, William Perrin and Maeve Walsh
This updated proposal outlines a refined approach to a statutory duty of care model (first proposed in a detailed blog series), to require social media and other internet platforms to take reasonable steps to prevent foreseeable harm from arising to users.
Following engagement with a range of stakeholders, this paper sets out new or revised thinking on a number of key aspects of the approach including: the scope of services subject to regulation, the nature of harms included, penalties and the interaction of the proposal with criminal law.
