New law in Brazil restricts social media sites from policing content

TRT World says Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has approved legislation which limits social media companies from removing content or accounts.

President Bolsonaro signed new legislation that changes the rules of content moderation on social media, a move that critics argue could hinder the fight against disinformation.

The decree goes into effect immediately but must be ratified by Congress in order to become law. 

It aims to combat “the arbitrary and unjust deletion of accounts, profiles and content by providers,” the federal communications secretariat said.
