Is there a magic formula to calculate the tolerance range of freedom of expression? How do you measure legally the distance between the irresponsibility of social network platforms, the simplified notice & takedown processes, and prior checking as an editorial choice? Are terrorism, cyber-bullying, hate speech and fake news valid parameters to define that area? Under which conditions? And, were a formula to exist, could the algorithm apply it transparently, without generating obscure black boxes capable of magically filtering what cannot be said, what cannot be disseminated, what is not true? We would like to answer these questions, as lawyers, starting from specific real-life examples.
