the That’s right about the fake junior, it is a meeting of deciphering and verifying information that was done with students this week as well with department 5 from Bruyères College in Courbevoie, Hauts-de-Seine. Answer their questions about what we really have the right to do or not on platforms and social networks.
“I saw on television news that an 18-year-old had killed ten people at a supermarket in Buffalo, United States, and that he would be broadcasting everything on the Twitch platform. Do we have the right to transmit everything?Lou asks. Twitch this american platform was originally designed to broadcast video games and over time has become a communication tool.
Romain Badouard, a researcher at the French Press Institute, answers Lou: “You must first know that websites such as Twitch, YouTube or Facebook, what we call platforms, must obey the law and as such, no, they are not allowed to broadcast videos like those about massacres or violent videos. ” The researcher then qualifies, specifying that, unfortunately, that remains theoretical. “In practice, the problem that these websites face is that they have to work with a very large number of publications.”. On YouTube, for example, he says, “Fr.It is estimated that 500 hours of video are uploaded to the site every minute. To keep up with all this user-generated content, the platforms are working to develop automated detection tools. “.
Romain Badouard specifies that these tools act like robots or software that will scan the content of Internet users’ publications to identify prohibited images or prohibited words.
Increased problems with Twitch are related to live streaming. ‘VS’is much harder to moderate than written posts, photos or videos that are published after recording, explains the researcher. For example, during the last massacre that began to be broadcast on Twitch, Twitch’s algorithms and tools managed to spot the video and stop it after two minutes of broadcasting. Two minutes is already huge because unfortunately a lot happens in two minutes. But you have to keep in mind that a few years ago, when a similar event happened in New Zealand and was broadcast live on Facebook, the video was over fifteen minutes long. So, there are still points for improvement, but whatever it is, no, we do not have the right to broadcast everything on the Internet, on any platform.
“The student posted a video on Instagram in which he insulted another student, CPE and teachers by giving their names. What is the risk before the law?Thelma wonders
This time he is approached by Eric Morain, a criminal lawyer. “IT from the moment when the account is not in private mode or not in lock mode, he explains these objections are then public and may constitute a public insult, or even a grave public insult if the person targets persons protected by law, in this case teachers.. The lawyer of the Paris Bar Association specifies that this is a fine, but that if these remarks are accompanied by threats, even death threats, we will go to a higher level and that is an act for which the sentence is imprisonment and a fine.
Moreover, adds Eric Morain, “If these remarks are repeated, repeated in relation to the same persons, they may constitute a criminal offense of harassment which is also an offense punishable by imprisonment and a fine”. If a person is a minor, he or she can be prosecuted, and his or her parents are responsible for any damage that may be awarded to the victims. Finally, from a disciplinary point of view, since a student violates the rules of procedure, he may suffer a sanction that may lead to expulsion from college.
