Another Controversial Online Safety Bill
The Kids Online Safety Act has garnered much controversy from privacy and free speech experts.
There’s a controversial online safety bill making its way through Congress. The Kids Online Safety Act (KOSA) is designed to protect kids from online harm on social media, but of course, it’s garnered much controversy from privacy and online free speech experts, who believe the bill will result in online surveillance and censorship.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) even calls KOSA a “censorship bill” and believes it will change the way we access information forever.
At the heart of the bill, the EFF notes “is a “Duty of Care” that the government forces on every website, app, social network, message forum, and video game.”
