8th HONG KONG INTERNET GOVERNANCE FORUM (HKIGF) – Fake News Law
Hong Kong Internet Governance Forum (HKIGF) Fake news law: effective to combat disinformation online? 立法打擊假新聞，效用大唔大？
The HKSAR government is considering to implement “fake news” law to combat disinformation, especially on online media platforms and social media, due to the appearance of a considerable amount of misinformation and disinformation online. However, some voiced out it might undermine freedom of speech, freedom of press and free flow of information online. Is legislation an effective way to combat “fake news” online? What impact will it cause to the media and online community? What can we learn from “fake news” law in other countries?
