Socially relevant and highly topical questions will be answered at MEDIENTAGE 2019 from 23 to 25 October 2019. How can Hate Speech and Disinformation on the Internet be combated? Will platform operators have to take “proactive” action against insults in the future? Can a tougher course against hate comments be enforced on Facebook, Twitter and Co., as Digital Minister Dorothee Bär (CSU) is now demanding?
SPD expert Sven Kohlmeier and the Bavarian parliamentary party leader of Bündnis 90/DIE GRÜNEN, Katharina Schulze, will discuss the topic “Do operators have their platforms under control?” at the Main Stage at the ICM of Messe München on 24 October. Marie-Teresa Weber, who works on Facebook as Public Policy Manager, will argue for the social media.
The 33rd MEDIENTAGE MÜNCHEN will also be holding further workshops in the “Media & Network Policy” programme to discuss the new Interstate Media Treaty. What changes will the rules and regulations for platforms, publishers, influencers and gamers bring? Among others, State Secretary Heike Raab (SPD), brema Director Cornelia Holsten and Telekom Manager Alexander Scheuer will meet.
The three-day conference of #MTM19 will also discuss “Ways out of the platform dilemma: strategies for a self-determined digital ecosystem“, “TV goes online – technically: media convergence in youth media protection” with new solutions for the changing media consumption of the youngest and the question “What becomes of upload filters, ancillary copyright & Co.”
BLM President Siegfried Schneider will present the second diversity report of the media institutions on 23 October at MEDIENTAGE 2019. In addition to the “MedienVielfaltsMonitor”, the work also contains regulatory approaches for “intermediaries”, texts on media use of social media and on the effects of the EU copyright reform on media law.
