For Brookings Institution’s TechTank, Bruna Santos and I wrote an overview of the EU Digital Services Act proposal, and the lessons US (and other) policy makers can learn from it, in terms of intermediary liability. This is the third in our series of articles on intermediary liability legislation, after an in-depth look at the legislative reform proposals…
For Brookings Institution’s TechTank, I wrote with Bruna Santos, an in-depth look at the legislative reform proposals around the world (specifically US, EU and Brazil) on intermediary liability. This is a follow-up article to our previous breakdown of the legislative context globally.
For the Humboldt Institute’s Digital Society blog, I authored a piece calling for meaningful transparency regulations as more important than any other antitrust action. There is also a partly German version.
For Brookings Institution’s TechStream, I wrote with Dr. Anne L. Washington, a conceptual piece in which we talk about how the narrow and compliance-focused perspective that Big Tech companies take on dealing with “Ethics” is very likely to permeate any antitrust action taken by the government, given current proposals.

I wrote, along with Bruna Santos, from Brazil’s Coding Rights, a piece for Brookings Institution’s TechTank, highlighting the diverse ways in which other countries (outside the US) handled legislation on content moderation.
This post originally appeared on Techdirt with the title Facebook’s Oversight Board Can’t Intervene, So Stop Asking: As Facebook employees stage a digital walk-out and make their thoughts known about the social media giant’s choice to not intervene in any way on “political posts”, especially those of President Donald Trump, some have called for the newly-created Oversight Board to step up…
Alongside my colleague Franco Giandana, I co-wrote a report on Latin America for the 2019 Edition of the Global Information Society Watch focusing on the Judicial aspect, both how AI is seen and how it’s being integrated.
