GNI Letter and Analysis: Draft “Childhood Protection Law” in Colombia

August 30, 2021|feature, intermediary liability, Issues, issues highlight, Letter, media releases|

The protection of the rights of children and adolescents are important and admirable aims, which GNI fully supports. However, as drafted, the proposed "childhood protection law" poses significant risks for freedom of expression and privacy, reflecting a rushed process, and including vague definitions, broad enforcement authorities for the executive, and significant obligations for intermediaries, including content filters.
