Online abuse: 'existing laws too fragmented and don’t serve victims' | UK news | The Guardian
“There are crimes now taking place – the malicious use of intimate photographs for example – which we never would have imagined as an offence when I was a PC in the 80s. It’s not just the nature of it, it is the sheer volume. “The levels of abuse that now take place within the internet are on a level we never really expected. If we did try to deal with all of it we would clearly be swamped.” [...] Earlier in the week, it emerged that the Crown Prosecution Service in England and Wales has turned to Twitter for help as it faces a worrying increase in the use of social media by perpetrators to commit crimes against women and girls, including rape, domestic abuse and blackmail.

Security Experts Warn of Orwellian Future in Apple Case | Re/code
[ all without a warrant ] Your Samsung smart TV or Amazon Echo might spy on you next if the government succeeds in forcing Apple to disable security protections on a smartphone to further the FBI’s investigation into the San Bernardino attacks. Security experts from Stanford, Harvard and Rice universities and independent researchers laid out this Orwellian scenario in a court filing today, supporting Apple’s fight against a court order to help investigators hack a smartphone used by one of the assailants in the mass killing. The group of seven experts argues that the judge’s order [...] disturbing possibilities for how law enforcement might turn everyday items into surveillance tools. //&!

Facebook: Hamburger Datenschützer fordert Recht auf Pseudonyme - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der bislang durchgesetzte Zwang zu Klarnamen verstoße gegen das im deutschen Telemediengesetz verankerte Recht eines jeden Bürgers auf die Benutzung eines Pseudonyms. [...] Schleswig-Holsteins Datenschutzbeauftragter war bereits vor mehr als zwei Jahren vor dem Oberverwaltungsgericht in Schleswig mit dem Versuch gescheitert, Facebook zur Einführung von Pseudonymen zu zwingen. Pseudonyme würden Nutzern erlauben, ihre wahre Identität zu verbergen. Die Richter entschieden damals in einem nicht weiter anfechtbaren Beschluss, dass für alle Aktivitäten des unter anderem für Europa zuständigen Facebook-Hauptquartiers mit Sitz in Irland allein das nationale Datenschutzrecht dieses Landes gilt. Deutsche Vorschriften greifen also nicht. // &! - Facebook has been prevented from stopping users in Germany creating accounts under false names.

He is due to be sentenced at a later date. [...] "My work is done here. wpww 14/88."

The Supreme Court is about to tackle online threats for the first time | The Verge
The issue before the Supreme Court is whether "a true threat" requires finding that the threatener subjectively intended to be threatening. Elonis is arguing for a subjective intent requirement, claiming that his posts were meant as rap lyrics and not as threats, while the prosecutors are arguing for an "objective" standard—a threat counts as a threat if a "reasonable person" would think the statement is a threat. The government is arguing that it’s enough to use an objective standard, with an exception for "idle or careless talk, exaggeration, something said in a joking manner or an outburst of transitory anger." However, when it comes to the Internet, where context or tone may be more difficult to perceive, this objective standard has obvious drawbacks [...] [UK has] law that forbids electronic messages that are "grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene, or menacing character," [...] "with the intent to intimidate." [...] "[...] most likely to inspire fear of bodily harm."

Bloggerin Kathrin Weßling über Online-Kommentare - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kathrin Weßling: Ich weiß es nicht. Ich wohne ja im Internet und habe das Gefühl, alles schon gesehen zu haben. Eigentlich kann man sagen, es eskaliert immer dann, wenn es um Emotionen oder Politik geht. [...] Und das ist ja typisch für Trolle, dass sie Frauen wegen Äußerlichkeiten angreifen. Frage: Wie meinen Sie das? Weßling: Die Tendenz ist, dass Frauen für ihr Aussehen, ihre Sexualität beleidigt werden. Dann heißt es: Diese Frau müsste mal wieder „richtig durchgenommen“ werden. Oder: Diese Frau hat ein psychisches Problem. Männern hingegen wird oft Inkompetenz vorgeworfen, Unwissen, schlechte Recherche oder Arroganz. Ich habe bei einem Mann noch nie einen Kommentar gelesen wie: Du bist so hässlich, geh sterben. [...] Das Internet ist ein Spiegel der Menschheit. Es gibt genauso viele Frauen, die voller Neid und Frust kommentieren. Aber ich bin erstaunt, dass viele das nicht einmal anonym tun, sondern mit ihrem Klarnamen bei Facebook.

“I Lied To You A Few Days Ago": The Leak Messaging App And Anonymous Honesty | Fast Company | Business Innovation
[#FNAC] [ A reflection of personal values. And Marc Andreessen had his rant on twitter about it. ] "Leak’s creator, the facilitator of this budding paranoia, is a 25-year-old living in Paris named Laurent Desserrey. He says he wanted to create a “really positive and exciting tool.” A couple of friends helped Desserrey build Leak over a single weekend. It's simple. Users fill out a form with their recipient’s email address, their message, and whether they are a coworker, friend, friend-of-a-friend, family member, or “someone.” The concept was partly inspired by Secret, an app that allows users to post anonymous messages to their friends and friends of friends and fits into a neat trend of apps that allow expression without attribution. Whisper, Yik Yak, and Wut are just a few others." // & &

Bad news for whistleblowers. Secret is far less secret than you think | PandoDaily
Only DAU thinks Secret or Whisper or any other consumer grade app, on a consumer grade tablet or phone, promising keeping them anonymity, uses these apps to 'blow the whistle.' ahhm troll, hate and gossip or even leak stuff. I thought Silicon Valley ppl are smart. No they just know how to code & design ... "to make the world better" ... sort of. “A court order without probable cause or even a subpoena may be enough for law enforcement or for a civil litigant to demand records.“ Conley went on to say that anonymous app companies need to make sure their backend data practices line up with the advertised purpose of their product: “They need to think through their own process. If you are offering a service that is about providing anonymous communication, then if you are retaining their identity and tying it to their communication, then you are kind of undermining the whole purpose of your service.”

Graham Henry: As we bathe in the glory of International Women's Day remember the plight of transgender people - Graham Henry - Wales Online
If it’s possible to rank, transgender people suffer perhaps the greatest hurdles of all in the great fight for acceptance. While the fights for rights of gay people and women are being fought in the newspaper columns, on our television screens and in the Houses of Parliament, with the baton taken up by politicians and celebrities alike, the demonising of transgender people continues in private among sniggering smartphone users and ignorant fools. Unchallenged, and largely unfashionable.

Can Social App Secret Survive the Trolls? | Re/code
Problem is, deep down inside, some of us are jerks. It’s a common problem on the Internet — once you take away identity and accountability, it’s far easier to troll other people. Take a look at many comments sections for Web publishers (including, often, this very site). As a result, much of my Secret stream has been filled with Silicon Valley gossip and trash talk. [...] At launch, Secret co-founders David Byttow and Chrys Bader said they’re relying on a community policing system, where users can flag problem posts or block bad connections. And ideally, they said, your network will contain fewer trolls since it’s composed mostly of your friends and your friends’ friends. As at least my network has proved thus far, friend or no, not everyone is nice in the dark. [... the same ol fallacy that a community of anon people will police themselves ... ROFL. The same fallacy still exists for the same reason Admins, Support people, Mods, and Reporting Forms still exist ...]
