Online Speech Regulation: A Comparative Perspective

Claudia Haupt

Databite No. 110

First amendment legal scholar Claudia Haupt discusses speech protection versus speech regulation and how these issues are approached in various countries around the world.

This talk visits and describes different sets of free speech values – in particular the recent NetzDG legislation in Germany – and investigates how censorship is defined within the context of online speech regulation.

Data & Society’s Fellows Talks is a three-part Databite series showcasing our 2017-2018 fellows cohort. Each talk features 2-3 fellows speaking about their work, wide-ranging interdisciplinary connections, and a few of the provocative questions that have emerged this year.

Claudia Haupt is a 2017-18 Data & Society Fellow and a resident fellow with the Information Society Project at Yale Law School. She previously taught at Columbia Law School and George Washington University Law School. Prior to that, she clerked at the Regional Court of Appeals of Cologne and practiced law at the Cologne office of the law firm of Graf von Westphalen, with a focus on information technology law.
