PINGO: NETmundial Adopts Principles on INternet GOvernance

PINGO: NETmundial Adopts Principles on INternet GOvernance | Regulating the web | Scoop.it
The Internet Governance Roadmap, which was adopted recently in Sao Paulo by the Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of the Internet Governance Ecosystem (NETmundial) includes a lot of controversial issues -- from net neutrality to mass surveillance -- and it is unclear how this will be translated into reality. However, the Internet Governance Principles, also adopted by NETmundial, were less controversial, but will have probably a sustainable and deep effect for the future of the Internet.

The impossibility of European audiovisual media regulation in the era of the sharing economy

The impossibility of European audiovisual media regulation in the era of the sharing economy | Regulating the web | Scoop.it
The convergence of media markets and the emergence of video-sharing platforms may make the existing regulative tradition obsolete. This essay demonstrates an emergent need for regulatory convergence on European Union’s Audiovisual Media Service Directive (AVMSD).

BBC+ & the Mobile Application Framework

BBC+ & the Mobile Application Framework | Regulating the web | Scoop.it
Native apps have become an increasingly popular way of accessing the BBC’s content – the likes of the BBC News, Weather, Sport as well as BBC iPlayer apps have proved to be loved and used widely by audiences. However, there is also a wide range of content from across the organisation that audiences were unlikely to know about or get the chance to see in an app format.

Our team of editorial staff working on the Homepage were already identifying highlights of a broad range of diverse content across the BBC, and with the recent and on-going work around personalising the Homepage using myBBC services, creating the BBC+ app fitted naturally into this existing workflow.

Of course, identifying a suitable workflow and actually integrating with it are two very different things and provoke many questions, but one of the key points we needed to address – which I will address in this blog – was what would be the most time-efficient and cost-effective means of developing an app for two mobile platforms at the same time.

It became apparent that many aspects of what we wanted to develop included features and functionality that had been developed at the BBC previously. Trying to unpick codebases of existing products might go some way to providing the functionality we required, but it was clear that a unified app development strategy would make it easier for all products to create apps in the future. This thinking led the Platform division of Design & Engineering devising the Mobile Application Framework (MAF), and BBC+ is one of the very first apps to be built using this framework.

The filter bubble isn't just Facebook's fault -- it's yours

The filter bubble isn't just Facebook's fault -- it's yours | Regulating the web | Scoop.it

"Following the shock results of Brexit and the Trump victory, a lot of attention has focused on the role that Facebook might have played in creating online political ghettos in which false news can easily spread. Facebook now has serious political influence thanks to its development from a social networking tool into a primary source of news and opinions. And for many, the way it manages this influence is in need of greater scrutiny. But to put the blame solely on the company is to overlook how people use the site, and how they themselves create a filter bubble effect through their actions."

Google Wipes Record Breaking Half Billion Pirate Links in 2016

Google Wipes Record Breaking Half Billion Pirate Links in 2016 | Regulating the web | Scoop.it

Copyright holders continue to overload Google with DMCA takedown requests, targeting “pirate links” in the company’s search results.

In recent years the number of notices has exploded, breaking record after record.

Data analyzed by TorrentFreak reveals that Google recently received its 500 millionth takedown request of 2016.

The counter currently displays more than 523,000,000, which is yet another record. For comparison, last year it took almost the entire year to reach the same milestone.
